City of Edinburgh Council — Bus Lane Operational Hours

Deadline 22 November 2019

The City of Edinburgh Council is seeking views on changing the times that general traffic can use bus lanes to make it faster for people to travel by bus and want to hear your views.

Currently, most bus lanes on the main roads of Edinburgh are closed to general traffic Monday to Friday during peak hours only (7.30 to 9.30 and 16.00 to 18.30).  Within these times only buses, taxis, motorcyclists, cyclists, and emergency vehicles can use these lanes.  Outside these times other vehicles can drive in the lanes which can slow down buses and cause congestion. The Council are proposing to close bus lanes to general traffic from 7.00 to 19.00 seven days a week to make it faster for people to travel by bus.

To respond please visit the City of Edinburgh Council consultation hub. The deadline for responses is Friday 22 November.
