Parking in the city centre needn’t be complicated! The simple truth is there are a plethora of car parking options in the city ranging from City Council car parks, Transport NI (Formerly Roads Service) car parks, Victoria Square and CastleCourt parking as well as numerous privately operated parking facilities.
BCCM has compiled a thorough list of car parks within our operating area, complete with tariffs, addresses and contact information.
Belfast city centre is well serviced with clean, accessible public toilets. City centre locations include Arthur Lane, Church Lane, Winetavern Street, Bankmore Square, Hope Street, Custom House Square and Lombard Street.

The Blue Badge Scheme provides on-street parking concessions for badge holders who travel either as drivers or passengers.
When making use of the parking concessions available under the scheme, badge holders must display the badge on top of the dashboard or facia panel of a vehicle with the front of the badge (that is, the side showing the wheelchair-user symbol) facing forward so that the relevant details are able to be read from outside of the vehicle.
• Locations of disabled parking bays can be found on our accessibility website.
• All information on use of a ‘blue badge’ can be found here.

Transport NI have introduced a number of bus lanes throughout the city centre and also on the arterial routes servicing the city.
Bus lanes are shown by road markings and signs that indicate which (if any) other vehicles are permitted to use the bus lane. In Belfast city centre the legislation allows permitted taxis, motorcycles and bicycles to use bus lanes.
Unless otherwise indicated, you should not drive in a bus lane during its period of operation.
As from 31st January 2016 a 20mph zone has been created in the city centre by Transport NI.
