PLEASE ACT NOW – Bus Lanes Petition

Bus Lanes Petition

We are asking all members to act now by signing the ‘Bikes in Bus Lanes’ petition.

The petition is on the official Parliamentary Petitions website and will take up less than a minute of your time to complete.

  • Follow the link below:

  • Click on the green “Sign this petition” button.
  • Enter your details and then click the green “Continue” button.
  • You will then receive an email with a link that you must follow to confirm your signature on the petition.


  • In addition to signing the petition yourself, please ask someone else (e.g. a family member, friend or work colleague) to do the same. They don’t need to ride themselves; they just need to support your request to have default access in bus lanes.  It may help to point out the advantages of bikes being in bus lanes (i.e. not taking up space in other lanes).


Signing this petition is important and can make a real difference.  Colin Brown is pushing for a meeting with the Department for Transport (DfT) to discuss the detail of how such a policy can be introduced.  Colin will be highlighting the Petition and noting that the Government will be obliged to formally respond when we break the 10,000-signature target for a Parliamentary response.  We are looking for a meaningful result, rather than a formulaic brush off.

What about Wales and Scotland?

Wales and Scotland could not be specifically listed on the petition due to the devolved nature of transport policy.  Northern Ireland already permits access to all of their bus lanes.  If we get a positive result for England, it will assist our case in making the same arguments in Wales and Scotland.


Please sign the petition whether the outcome will help you as an individual or not.  We need to get this petition over the line for the collective benefit of all riders.


Thank you for your support.
