Provides additional space between car traffic and the bike lane. Indicated by double white lines with hash marks. Parking is shown to the right of the bike lane.
Traditional bike lane
A single white line defines the boundary of the bike lane.
Contra-flow bike lanes
Contra-flow bike lanes work the same way as normal painted bike lanes and are often found on quiet residential streets. The main difference is that they are indicated by a solid yellow line and run in the opposite direction of car traffic. They help people on bikes navigate one-way streets by making them bi-directional.
