In the UK a three year study has shown that scooters and motorcycles can safely use bus lanes.
Petition to use bus lanes

Riders can now let Tony Blair know what they think about bikes in bus lanes by signing an online petition demanding we’re allowed to use them.
The petition, on Number 10’s website, says: “We the undersigned petition the Prime Minister to allow the use of "Bus Only" lanes by scooters and motorcyles throughout the UK without penalty at any time.”
More than 1,000 names have already been added with five months to go before it’s submitted to Blair.
We reported last month that transport authorities in London were still stalling on letting us use bus lanes despite a three year limited trial showing it would not lengthen bus journey times or deter cyclists.
Riders’ rights groups say access to bus lanes in the capital is a key step to access across the country.
