Most of us know that bus lanes in NZ are fair game for “cycles”. This is an NZ legal term that covers bicycles, motorcycles and mopeds. All of us should know that BUS ONLY lanes are for… BUSES ONLY. While some of the BUS ONLY lanes in the city are confusing, some are really simple. In particular, the area around the rail terminus is BUSES ONLY 24/7 for very good reason: It’s an industrial site, not a road.

Go Wellington is starting to complain about the number of bicycles gong through there, and I have to agree that it’s just not a good idea. Go around it or walk through it in the pedestrian areas. Riding through there is seriously not a good idea, and you can be ticketed for it.
