Using bus lanes on the Hills M2 upgrade
The Hills M2 Motorway forms part of the strategic bus corridor network for Sydney. It is an important public transport corridor with over 27,000 bus commuters using the motorway each day. The westbound and eastbound Bus Only lanes will be reinstated between Windsor Road, Baulkham Hills and just west of the Kent Street, Epping footbridge at the end of April, weather permitting. The westbound Bus Only lane was re-established in March 2013.
Bus Only lanes are a special form of bus lanes restricted to bus only use. Taxis, hire cars, motorcycles and bicycles are generally not permitted to use Bus Only lanes. However, Taxis and Hire Cars will be permitted to use the Hills M2 Motorway citybound Bus Only lane when it is fully reinstated between Windsor Road and just west of Kent Street Epping. For more information with regards to Bus Only lanes, please contact RMS on 132 213.
