Ken Glendinning of BMF and Steve Wykes of Edinburgh MAG have been working, tirelessly with officers and councillors of Edinburgh city council for around ten years to achieve a trial of full city-wide motorcycle access to the Bus lanes.  At a meeting of Edinburgh city council’s Transport & Environment committee councillor voted to accept a trial period of eighteen months beginning in June 2015, with a review after nine months.  This was in spite of attempts by Green party and Liberal Democrat members to reduce the trial period to six months, citing “speeding” concerns.

Ken of the BMF and Steve of MAG are rightfully delighted with the outcome and many riders will be keen to thank them for their unrelenting dedication to this cause.
