The changes follow a review of Edinburgh’s 40 miles of bus lanes.
Lesley Hinds, Edinburgh City Council’s transport convener, said: “By allowing motorcyclists to use bus lanes we will also be making their journeys both safer and quicker, with little or no impact on buses. Both trials will be closely monitored throughout to assess the impact on all road users.”
