Busway transit, the physical segregation of bus and other traffic, offers the possibility of introducing a mass transit system at relatively low cost.The purpose of these design guidelines is to assemble current ideas on busway transit and to offer transport planners and designers a source of practical information on their use and implementation. This Note is primarily directed at practitioners rather than policy makers, and focuses on busway transit rather than general bus priority measures. It contains examples of current practice, derived from published information and from observation of operational schemes around the world. The Note complements TRL Research Report 329 on busway transit performance (Gardner et al, 1991).
