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 motor vehicles built or adapted to carry a minimum of 9 passengers (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 enter a bus lane or use a bus gate, you may get a Penalty Charge Notice (PCN) of £60, which will reduce to £30 if you pay within 21 days
The bus gate is marked by standard ‘no motor vehicles’ signs – a red circle with a motorbike above a car inside.
