The King Street bus gate
There is a bus gate on King Street.
This means that part of the road is only open to buses, black cabs and pedal cycles at all times i.e., 24 hours a day.
By buses we mean motor vehicles built or adapted to carry a minimum of 9 passengers (not including the driver).
This bus gate runs westbound only, from Essex Street to Cross Street.
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 a blue sign with images of a bus, cycle and the word taxi on it.
