Parking, car parks and bus lanes

Salford City Council is responsible for most aspects of parking in the city. This includes the maintenance of pay and display car parks and the enforcement of parking regulations under the provisions of the Traffic Management Act 2004, known as civil parking enforcement.

From September 2015, cashless parking will be available on all of the council's pay and display car parks and the Controlled Parking Zone (CPZ) within the Blackfriars and Trinity areas.

This will allow people to pay for parking with credit/debit cards via a mobile phone using a service provided by Parkmobile as an alternative to using cash in pay and display machines. On-site signage will advise motorists how to use the system.

Further information can be found on the Parkmobile website or by calling parking services on 0161 779 4987.

In November 2014, the council became responsible for the enforcement of unauthorised vehicles being driven or stopped in bus lanes using cameras monitoring the city's bus lanes.

Vehicles authorised to use these lanes are buses, hackney carriages, pedal cycles and emergency services vehicles.

If you have received a penalty charge notice for being in a bus lane and wish to view the photographic evidence, please visit our parking portal. Once you've entered your notice details you'll see the images.

The council is a member of the Parking and Traffic Regulations Outside London (PATROL) Adjudication Joint Committee and the Bus Lane Adjudication Service Joint Committee. The joint committee publishes an Annual Statement of Accounts which is subject to external audit.
