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.

Bus lanes

We use cameras to monitor the city's bus lanes for unauthorised use.

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 and select 'Challenge a PCN' then 'Formal Representation'. 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. The joint committee publishes an Annual Statement of Accounts which is subject to external audit.
