Across London Red route bus lanes are now un-restricted to use for motorbikes.  Note this is still a trail period which will be reviewed in May 2010.

Having access to these bus lanes is great news for riders and as long as the road safety numbers improve and riders are not seen as more of a problem,  then these concessions are likely to stay after May 2010.

Red Route Bus Lanes

Red Route Bus Lanes

Red Route Bus Lanes are now unrestricted for motorbikes.  This is a temporary measure which will be reviewed by May 2010.  These bus lanes are on red routes which are managed by TfL.

Note:  All other bus lanes operated by Local Councils maintain the restrictions for motorbikes., unless signed otherwise. An easy way to know is to check the sign on entry into the bus lane, as most of these lanes will have single or double yellow lines.

Other Bus Lanes

In London all other non Red Routes/TfL roads are operated by the Local Councils.  These bus lanes carry the standard restrictions for motorcycles.  These are often by the lack of the red lines and are painted with a single or double yellow line.
