The photographs are attractive but they need scientific road-testing. London has many bus-lanes with good enforcement by a system of cameras and fines. Oxford Street traffic is bus and taxi only and has 160 buses/hour in each direction. The average occupancy is only 18 passengers and the buses only travel at walking speed. Mostly, the buses are bunched and there are long stretches of empty road between the bunches. On the main roads into London there is less bunching and there are far longer gaps, of empty road, between the buses. So my guess is that a 'crocodile' flow of bicycles, of the kind you see in Copenhagen and Amsterdam, would transport far more passengers in the same road space (and with less noise, pollution, cost, obesity etc). Does anyone know if passenger flow in dedicated bus and cycle lanes has been empirically tested?
