WE have had a bus/taxi lane on The Mount for several years now and are continuously subjected to a permanent line of early morning traffic, revving engines, squealing fan belts, irate drivers using their horns and the whirring from bus engines.

However, last week and on a school day The Mount was traffic queue free, the reason being the traffic lights were down so everyone had a free run.

On a busy morning it can take 15 minutes to get though two sets of lights because of the bus lane. Time for a rethink, City of York Council.
