Stop for Bus Passengers *

    Bikes have the right of way in most situations but when busses stop, bicycles are required to stop in order to let the passengers off.

      Are motorists also required to stop for buses?

      When busses pull back out into traffic, yes. Cars must yield. But bus stops are never situated where cars drive past on the right. They're on the kerb [curb].

      There are two kinds of bus stops. One where passengers alight onto a strip of pavement. Bikes don't have to stop here. Passengers must wait for the bike traffic to clear. Then there are bus stops that release passengers right onto the bike lane, as above. Here, bikes must stop so there safe pasaage over the bike lane to the pavement.

      Thanks for the explanation. I didn't even consider that cyclists would try to pass to the right of a stopped bus.
