Banning notices

A banning notice forbids you from entering or remaining on a bus, bus stop or bus interchange.

It is a formal written document that states what bus, bus stop or bus interchange you’re banned from and how long for.

A transit officer, authorised by the director of transport, may issue you a banning notice if they believe you have:

  • engaged in offensive, threatening, violent or disorderly conduct on a bus, at a bus stop, or at or in the vicinity of a bus station
  • damaged a bus, a transit safety vehicle, a bus stop or a bus interchange including any property.
