Bus lanes are a crucial part of our roads, to make public transport safer and more efficient. There are two types of bus lanes:

Normal bus laneFull-day bus lane
Opening hours:
Mondays to Fridays 
  
7.30 am to 9.30 am
5.00 pm to 8.00 pm
Opening hours:
Every day except Sundays and Public Holidays

7.30 am to 11.00 pm

Using the bus lane during operating hours is illegal for all vehicles, except for:

  • Bicycles in single file
  • Emergency service vehicles and police vehicles on urgent duty call
  • Non-scheduled buses

Non-scheduled buses, such as school buses and factory buses, can drive in the bus lane, but they cannot stop, pick up or drop off passengers along the bus lane.

When you need to make a turn, you may use the dotted bus lane.
