Bedford Borough Council officially opened their bus lanes to motorcycle and moped access today.

Paddy Tyson, MAG's Campaigns Coordinator, met the Mayor Dave Hodgson and Councillor Charles Royden, Portfolio holder for the Environment and Transport to celebrate the event, which marks the start of an 18 month trial.

Paddy said "MAG are delighted with the Council's forward thinking attitude and the way it is embracing European Mobility Week, making a real effort to reduce congestion by promoting powered two wheelers. This in turn reduces the burden on road infrastructure, reduces emissions and improves journey times for all".

Trials across the country of a similar kind, from Bristol to Birmingham and Swindon to Sheffield, have all delivered positive results and been implemented on a permanent basis.

MAG fully supports the actions of Bedford Borough Council and the Mayoral Office and looks forward to working closely with them in the future to promote motorcycle use.
