Integrating Bus Stops with Cycletracks Using Ramps

  Continuing the previous blog related to Cycletracks and bus stops, the first photo is a lightly used bus stop and two way facility that offers a bus shelter on the bus loading area. This puts passengers close to the traffic which doesn't seem very pleasant.
The ramp from the cycletrack is farily narrow, but would seem to get a person in a wheelchair into a position where they can board the bus.  Posted by Picasa

The second example here shows the bus shelter on the other side of the cyceltrack and ramps to cross the cycletrack down at its grade. This is an example where the grade of the cycling facility is not altered to provide an accessible bus stop. The passenger loading zone seems quite narrow in this example.
