  1. hey all, just wondering is it illegal for me to ride in a T2 or T3 lane?

  2. not to put too fine a point on it, your states road user handbook will state this very clearly. In NSW at least (fill in your profile for more info) it is certainly legal, as is use of high occupancy lanes in victoria.
  3. ...and Qld ones, too. :grin:
  4. Learn to use Google will you instead of posting silly questions. :p

    Googling on T2 lanes motorcycles -
    From http://www.rta.nsw.gov.au/usingroads/buses/transitlanes.html

    Transit lanes
    Transit lanes (also known as T2 or T3 lanes) are in place to provide improved travel for buses, taxis and other vehicles carrying multiple occupants. They can also be used by emergency vehicles, motorcycles and bicycles.

    Located on heavy traffic routes, transit lanes generally operate in the main direction of travel during peak periods, reverting to normal lanes at other times.

    T2 lanes can be used by vehicles if there are two or more people in the vehicle, while T3 lanes can be used if there are three or more people in the vehicle.
