Pay parking tickets and bus lane charge notices


We are changing the way we process parking ticket and bus lane notice payments to make it quicker and easier for you. There are still four ways to pay. You should have the following details to hand:

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


The simplest way to pay is online. You can also view any photos for parking tickets or a video for bus lane notices. You will be able to view them before you pay. These will be available one day later.
