EXCALIBUR Extending Comprehensive Access with Local Initiatives for Bus Systems in Urban Areas
The main objective of this project is to develop consistent and good quality design for accessible public transport systems (in this case, buses) based on users' needs and subsequently to apply and evaluate these principles in the design and construction of some bus stops. The experimental phase of the project compared the performance of different buses with three types of kerb, which have been designed for use at accessible bus stops. The experiments confirmed the benefit of on-street guidance and also the usefulness of marking a particular kerb to help the drivers approach the stop correctly. A small number of bus stops have been constructed in London to reflect a variety of different operating circumstances and design constraints. The project designed the bus stop infrastructure facilities by examining aspects including pedestrian access infrastructure, footways, gradients, and maintenance.
