From page 40...
... Bus bypass shoulder (BBS) applications minimize congestionrelated schedule reliability problems, improve the competitive travel times for buses versus cars, are low cost and easy to implement, do not require new rights-of-way, and are not visually obtrusive.
From page 41...
... • What speeds are safe for BBS operations and how do bus volumes and shoulder width dimensions influence safe speeds? • What are the advantages and disadvantages of speedlimited BBS operations versus Ottawa's higher speed operations?
