Oxford Road bus gate reminder

08 Mar 2018

Manchester City Council has issued a reminder encouraging staff not to drive down Oxford Road to avoid receiving an automatic fixed £60 penalty charge notice

Oxford Road

Since its introduction in December 2016, the Bus Gate on Oxford Road has proved to be very successful with a high compliance level. Bus Gates were introduced in Manchester to help improve public transport, delivering improved journey times and more convenience for passengers. 

Staff, students and other visitors are advised to follow the signs and alternative routes which are in place

Buses are the most widely used form of public transport across the city and can move efficiently and more quickly along Oxford Road, one of Europe's busiest bus routes. 

Through the introduction of the Bus Gates, Manchester City Council has helped to create an improved, safer, cleaner environment for people walking, cycling and travelling into the city centre.

Monitoring and enforcement of bus gates is carried out by Manchester City Council, not TfGM.

Any queries about fines or their operation should be directed to:

  • Manchester City Council under the heading ‘Roads, parking and transport’. Or you can phone them on 0161 234 4111.
