Sharing The Road With Buses

Tag, your it!

Here's a video from one of the West Coast's bike meccas, Portland, on riding with buses and rail. Of course there is no light rail in the East Bay, but it still helps with railroad crossings.

Check out the bike boxes!

With AC Transit's BRT there would be no conflicts at bus stops. See previous post by Eric.
