A warning sign and road markings in advance of a bus lane will give you time to move to an open traffic lane.

There are two types of bus lanes. For bus lanes that are exclusively used by franchised buses, the signs are marked with bus symbol. For bus lanes that are open to all buses, including non-franchised buses, the signs are marked with the word "Bus".

A regulatory sign and road markings mark the beginning of the bus lane.

If the bus lane does not operate all the time, a time plate will tell you when the bus lane is in operation. Outside its period of operation a bus lane may be used by all vehicles.
