Curbside cycle tracks may be routed behind transit stops to maintain continuity while enabling better transit service. Cyclists are directed into a street-level channel which uses color and markings to inform cyclists of the expectation to yield to pedestrians.
This design is most appropriate where transit ridership or cyclist volumes are relatively low. It provides the best pedestrian access to the stop, since the cycle lane is at the same level as the stop. Though the design favors pedestrians and may slow cyclists down, it also creates the most opportunities for conflicts.
This design is most suited for streets with no parking lane, and it is the only design that does not require an extension into the roadway. The angled geometry forces cyclists to slow down in the cycle lane and should ensure that sidewalk paths remain safe and clear.
