From page 9...
... 9Intersection design geometry should permit the safe and efficient movement of cars, buses, trucks, pedestrians, and bicyclists. It should consider the characteristics of all users, the surrounding environment, and appropriate public agency policies and resources.
From page 10...
... modern buses (with overhang) require up to 51 feet outside turning radius.
From page 11...
... AASHTO publishes templates that delineate minimum turning radii and suggest paths for each design vehicle. These templates should be used to check the provision of adequate maneuvering space.
From page 12...
... Design Speed Roadway and busway intersections and alignment features depend upon the designated design speed, i.e., the speed selected to establish the geometric features of the roadway. Design speed depends upon the functional class of the roadway, topography, and land use.
From page 13...
... A general guide is to provide at least two berths for each direction at busway stations. Pedestrian Capacity Levels Pedestrian service levels and capacities are key inputs into designing bus stops/stations, walkways, stairways leading to and from stations, and general pedestrian movements in the station and intersection influence areas.
