OPENING OF BUS LANES FOR BIKES

London’s red route bus lanes open to motorcyclists for commuter ease and safety.

Honda (UK) today led a snow sprinkled ride out with a number of motorcycle industry partners and the London Mayor’s Director for Transport Policy, Kulveer Ranger, to celebrate the opening of London’s red route bus lanes for motorcyclists, following Transport for London’s (TfL) announcement to allow motorcycles to use red route bus lanes for an 18-month trial period starting from today.

Although red routes make up just 5% of London’s roads, this move by the Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, will significantly help cut congestion and keep the Capital moving and safer for all red route bus lane users.

The new ‘Code of Conduct’ for motorcyclists is available through the TfL’s website, www.tfl.gov.uk, or, from the MCIA’s website www.mcia.co.uk
