Bus stop by-passes and bicycle lanes

14 Jan 2023 15:58 | Simon Labbett (Administrator)

Bus stop by-passes (also called "floating bus stops"), which are usually sited on cycle super-highways, can cause a significant barrier for blind and partially sighed people. Crossing a busy bike lane at the designated points to reach these bus stops can be frightening and potentially dangerous.   We are currently developing work to devise ways of teaching techniques and approaches that could reduce the risks for vision impaired pedestrians.  If you are a practicing vision rehabilitation or habilitation specialist and you would like to join these discussions, please contact RWPN.
