Why don’t more cities escape the curse of bus-bike leapfrogging by putting bike lanes between transit platforms and sidewalks?
Though “floating bus stops” and similar designs are being used in many cities, others have avoided doing so, sometimes out of concern that people will be injured in collisions with bikes while they walk between platform and sidewalk.
The concern is understandable, but is this actually a thing that happens? An intersection in San Francisco that uses a similar design seems to be working just fine.
