Bus lane enforcement

Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) bus lane enforcement is in operation at four locations in Chester city centre. Designed to discourage drivers who ignore bus lane restrictions, enforcement will help improve journey times for public transport users.

All bus lanes are clearly signed both on the road (white lettering) and on posts at the entrances to the lanes. Most bus lanes can also be used by taxis, motorcycles and pedal cycles. All lanes will be clearly signed to indicate which vehicles are permitted.

Unauthorised entry into a bus lane will result in the driver of the offending vehicle receiving a £60 penalty charge notice by post. This is payable by the vehicle owner, however the charge will be reduced to £30 if it is paid within 14 days.

Pay a parking or bus lane fine

More information on how to challenge the PCN can be found online. You can also find out more about the enforcement of bus lanes on our guidance webpage.

Times of operation

If there are no times stated on the signs, the bus lane is in operation 24 hours a day. Road signs and markings will clearly indicate the start and end of bus lanes and highlight the hours of operation.

Parking in bus lanes

Parking is not allowed in bus lanes even with a blue badge. You will however be permitted to cross the bus lane to park in a parking facility (driveway, car park etc.) adjacent to the bus lane.
