Public transport on roads

Urban Design Guidelines for Victoria, published by the State of Victoria (Australia) in 2016, states in relation to public transport on roads (or on-road public transport): ‘There are two main types of public transport that use the road network: the fixed tram network, which is usually located on major roads and streets; and the bus network, which operates within standard traffic lanes or in bus priority lanes. Bus and tram priority routes have priority over general traffic.’
