Roads, parking & transport Bus gates

The Portland Street bus gate


There is a bus gate on Portland Street.

This means that part of the road is only open to buses, black cabs and pedal cycles at all times – 24 hours a day.

By buses we mean motor vehicles built or adapted to carry more than eight people (not including the driver).

This bus gate runs from Minshull Street to Aytoun Street – at the edge of Piccadilly Gardens in the city centre.

If you drive there in any other vehicle you could be fined up to £90

The bus gate is marked by standard ‘no motor vehicles’ signs – a red circle with a motorbike above a car inside.
