Bus lane notices

Pay a bus lane notice

We are changing the way that we process bus lane charge notice payments. Our new online services will make it quicker and easier for you. There are currently three ways to pay. You should have

  • the bus lane charge notice number 
  • your vehicle registration
  • a valid credit or debit card. 


The simplest way to pay is online. You can view a video of your vehicle from the time the notice was issued. This will be available one day later. You will be able to view this before you pay.
