Efficient public transport is an important part of a healthy city. The improvements they can bring to congestion for private motor vehicles should not be at the expense of cycling or walking. Efforts should be made to reduce the conflicts with cycling that newer programmes are threatening. When improving  bus routes, walking and cycling should experience improved facilities, never impediments. Mixed journeys should be easier, with increased cycle access and storage at all railway stations and easier opportunities to take cycles on public transport. MT 10/03/14: Buses, like all large vehicles, present a particular hazard to cyclists, therefore we encourage driver training and technology that helps drivers to avoid collisions with cyclists.
