Since early 2020, various major cities throughout the United States have implemented more bus lanes following the criteria approved by the Federal Highway Administration. Various officials of different cities have “rolled out the red carpet” for buses with red bus lane markings, among other clarifying road markings and signage. In Maryland, bus lanes make a difference. Teniseal/Parking Striping Corporation provides premium bus lane marking services throughout Maryland!
The Benefits of Bus Lanes
Bus lanes are a form of public transit and thus keep on a tight schedule to get from point A to point B. Bus lanes have proved to be useful around the world for keeping buses on track and out of highway or city congestion. Giving buses their own lane can not only cut down traffic times for buses but for vehicles as well.
Why Bus Lanes Are Red
As early as January 2020, multiple cities such as San Francisco, Chicago, San Diego, and Washington, D.C., got the go-ahead to install red-painted bus lanes. After experimenting with red bus lanes in these cities, officials found that painting the lanes red significantly improved traffic flow, decreased the rate of accidents, and gave a more attractive look to the city. Additional markings that direct vehicles to make right turns through bus lanes enhance the clarity of the traffic lanes.
Bus Lane Marking Services
Whatever kind of bus lane marking services you need, Teniseal/Parking Striping Corporation is at your services in Maryland. We are experts in providing high-quality road marking products with professional results. We highly recommend thermoplastic road paint for high traffic areas including bus lanes. Alkyd thermoplastic paint in particular is highly effective for inner-city roads, as it can withstand vehicle fluids, oil, and other debris better than the other type of thermoplastic paint, hydrocarbon. It also has higher retroreflectivity.
As for painting the bus lane, Teniseal/Parking Striping Corporation offers methyl methacrylate (MMA) coating. MMA is a proven acrylic product that bonds with the asphalt pavement and provides bright, long-lasting pigment. MMA coating can last for up to ten years, standing up to snowplows, vehicle fluids, and wear and tear from constant traffic.
