The penalty for illegally using a bus lane is £60. This is reduced to £30 if you pay within 14 days. Failure to pay or challenge the issue of a penalty charge notice within 28 days of it being served may result in the charge increasing to £90.

The money will be used to pay for the installation, upkeep and running of the system. Any surplus income from fines will be reinvested in Local Transport Strategy schemes to improve Southampton’s transport network.
