The Bus on Shoulder was first implemented as a pilot program in September 2015. During the first month of the program, drivers reported using the shoulder and average of two times per week, resulting in much faster travel times for commuters.
In November 2015, Laketran made the Bus on Shoulder program permanent.
- Laketran buses may drive on the I-90/SR-2 westbound and eastbound shoulders between the Euclid Spur and downtown Cleveland when traffic is traveling less than 30 miles per hour.
- The speed limit for buses traveling on the shoulder is 35 miles per hour.
- Entrance and exit ramps along the highway are treated as a yield sign.
- Areas where Bus on Shoulder is in effect are marked with signs reading, “Authorized Buses Only.”
