General restrictions on parking near bus stops apply under rule 6.8 of the Land Transport (Road User) Rule 2004.

Road controlling authorities can also make bylaws under the Land Transport Act 1998. These bylaws allow a road controlling authority to enforce controls on roads, public places and parking areas that are under the control of the authority.

Consultation processes may apply under the Local Government Act 2002 to the creation or amendment of such bylaws.

When creating or altering a bus stop, confirm the process for securing parking and traffic controls with the relevant road controlling authority.
