Belfast City Council has passed a motion in favour of allowing taxis to use bus lanes for an additional six months.
It comes amid a current twelve-week trial which permits taxis to use the Belfast Rapid Transit bus lanes.
As part of the trial, Class A taxis had been allowed to use lanes on the East and West Belfast Rapid Transit routes, and the 12-hour bus lanes in the city centre which link the two routes.
On Wednesday night, Councillors passed a motion in favour of extending the length of the trial period, permitting all taxis to use the Belfast Rapid Transit bus lanes, for an additional six months and expanding this out to include all Belfast bus lanes.
It was passed with only one vote against.
The council will now write an official letter of support to the Department for Infrastructure, asking to reverse the decision to end the trial period on 15th May.
