National News // Aug. 16, 2017

More bus lanes are being opened to motorcycles and scooters. The Federal Road Office has authorized a small selection of routes on busy roads in an effort to speed up traffic.

One section is now operational in canton Aargau and Geneva will have a section in Acacias near the stadium. Signs are placed to make clear which bus lanes can be used – still most can’t.

After three months, more bus lanes maybe opened – including on the Pont du Mont Blanc.

Detractors of the plan say it may slow down buses in the cities.
