Changes to Public Transport for SchoolsMarch 12, 2019
The ACT Government is introducing a new integrated public transport network for Canberra for the beginning of Term 2, 2019. This network will include bus and light rail services operating together to give Canberrans more options to use public transport, every day of the week.
As part of this change, the way students will get to school by public transport will change from Term 2.
Some students will use different routes, make connections between services or use light rail for the first time.
Every student who will use public transport needs to be aware of the changes.
What do you need to know?
Bus services will change for the beginning of Term 2.
The change to services will include dedicated school services for the commencement of Term 2 on 29 April 2019.
The new timetable information will be available on line from early March, including an improved online journey planner.
Information about services for each school is available online at https://www.transport.act.gov.au/getting-around/new-network/schools/schools-a-z-listing#S
Light rail services are being tested now, and you can find out more about safety for pedestrians, cyclists and drivers around light rail online at www.canberra-metro.com.au/safety.
