Following is from page 3 of the Daily Telegraph today. While it only mentions cyclists & taxis, it's safe to assume we're included. I couldn't find an online link, so I've typed it out. Bus-lane ban looms for bikes by Bruce McDougall Road chiefs will consider a proposal to ban cyclists and taxis from bus lanes. Roads Minister Michael Costa has asked the Roads and traffic Authority to investigate if a ban would improve safety and traffic flows in the city. His move follows a request from the bus union to change the law that allows cyclists and taxis to share bus lanes. Bus drivers have complained cyclists riding in bus lanes have become a hazard riding in the city. Theyt say bikes obstruct buses causing delays to services affecting thousands of passengers. "I'm sympathetic to the conerns of bus drivers in the CBD," Mr Costa said. "The NSW Government's plans to unclog the CBD will see more bus priority measures to cut travel times. "That includes new bus lanes and extending the operating hours of existing lanes. That's why I've asked the RTA to look at this issue in more detail." The bus division of the rail, Tram and Bus Union called for the taxi and cyclists ban during a meeting with senior Transport Ministry officals. Cyclists and taxis are legally allowed to travel in bus lanes but not in bus-only lanes as on the Harbour Bridge.
