Bad Metro Bus Driving (NEQ932)

7 months ago...more

I was riding down Lincoln Road this morning in the bicycle lane leading up to the merging lanes after the Lincoln Rd/Whiteleigh Ave intersection when the bus decided to cut into the bicycle lane and nearly took me out. The bus lane on that road doesn't start until approximately 50m further down the road and the bus driver should have merged with the traffic. Instead, the driver chose to undertake the merging vehicles and totally disregarded the cyclists on the bicycle lane.
