Bus lanes are part of the road that only buses, taxis, cyclists and emergency service vehicles can use. While bus gates are short sections of bus lane.
Bus lane cameras are now operating in various areas across Edinburgh to help improve bus journey times. The misuse of bus lanes and gates frustrates sensible motorists. The aim is to promote the use of public transport whilst reducing through traffic in residential areas.
If you drive in a bus lane you risk a £60 charge from the Police or the Council. Income from bus lane camera charges, issued by the Council, pays for the scheme. While any surplus income is used for transport improvements set out in the Council’s Local Transport Strategy.
