Question

Can you ensure that, whenever a bus stops at a floating bus stop in London, there is an announcement so that those alighting are made aware that they will have to cross a cycle lane to reach the pavement?

Such announcements are already in place across the bus network and are implemented as and when each bus stop is converted to a cycle bus stop by-pass. The announcement is made on approach to the bus stop and tells passengers the following:

"Caution. There is a cycle lane behind this bus stop. Use the crossing point."

TfL is not aware of instances where this is not taking place and will follow up any instances if details can be referred to its Customer Experience team.
