Guided busways allow buses to run along dedicated tracks, which can be slipformed or constructed with either precast beams or kerbs. The buses use guide wheels to steer the bus while running on the tracks, which means that the lane width for a guided busway is less than for a normal bus lane.
The accuracy possible with concrete elements allows the guided busways to provide an excellent ride quality. The extensive guided busway network in Cambridgeshire, linking Huntingdon and St Ives with Cambridge is a recent example.
