I currently drive from Blacktown to Brookvale 5 days a week and use the M2. I am looking at cutting down my 1 to 1.5 hour each way drive and get myself a bike again. I know that for some reason bikes can't use the Bus Only lane on the M2 so that leaves sitting in the traffic (which will be about the same time as driving), lane splitting, or using the breakdown lanes. Problem is I regularly see bikes pulled over by the police on the M2 so I wanted to ask what the riders who regularly use the M2 during peak hours do and the chances of getting fined are. Also has there been any rider outcry to them not allowing bikes to use the bus lane and anyone know the reason why they decided to make it a Bus Only lane instead of just a bus lane?
