It is against the law to park your vehicle in a bus stop. If you received a ticket for this violation, you were parked within a designated bus stop area. The area included in a “bus stop” depends on the features of that particular location, as follows:
(i) two traffic signs designating the bus stop, it consists of the area extending 8 feet into the roadway from the curb, and extending along the curb between the traffic signs designating the bus stop;
(ii) where a single sign indicates a bus stop but does not indicate its length along the curb, it extends for 50 feet approaching the sign;
(iii) where the curb is indented on a street where parking is prohibited, and a traffic sign indicates a bus stop in the indented area, the bus stop extends along the entire indented area.
See the diagram below for further guidance:
For the purposes of this paragraph, signs erected at the curb bearing the words Regional Transportation District, or "The Ride," or the letters R.T.D., or "The Hop," or a symbol for a bus are traffic control signs designating a bus stop. See the sample sign in the photograph below.
