Pedestrians: remember to check for bus lanes when crossing the road
You'll need to take care when crossing a road with bus lanes, as vehicles can travel very close to the footpath. Be sure to look for signs displaying operational times.
During operational times, only the vehicles listed below can use bus lanes:
- Motorcycles, motor scooters, mopeds
- Emergency services vehicles
You can phone the Christchurch City Council on (03) 941 8741 if you see other vehicles using or parking in bus lanes during operational times or your vehicles has been towed. Outside operational times, the bus lanes revert to on-street parking spaces with space for cyclists, where indicated.
