Even if they were I don't think an access path to a bus station would be a footpath ("footway") in the sense covered by the Highways Act 1835. They are paths designed to allow pedestrians to access a building not to aid pedestrian passage along a highway.
Yeah, but what about the bus "road" entrances where a non-standard "no cycling" sign is often found? There's one of those at https://firstname.lastname@example.org ... e0!6m1!1e1 near http://osm.org/go/0EUglYuys--?layers=C&m= which would seriously obstruct access to three cycle parks and a through cycle route if it were valid. (Actually, I wonder if it's changed since I last paid it any attention because that says only "BUSES ONLY" and "NO CARS" - doesn't mention cycling at all.)
