Leave bus zones for buses

Parking Enforcement has a zero-tolerance policy about parking or stopping in a bus zone.

If you park or stop in a bus zone, your vehicle will be ticketed, and possibly towed.

TransLink buses need a lot of room to stop, load, and unload passengers. They require additional space on either side of the bus to pull in and out of the bus stop. This area is known as a bus zone.

Bus zone signSection 17.3 of Street and Traffic By-law 2849 (947 KB) reserves bus zones for TransLink vehicles. Emergency vehicles (fire engines, ambulances, and police vehicles) are the only exception to bus stop regulations.
