Changes to school buses 2023

December 14, 2022


Transport Canberra has advised there are some important updates in relation to changes in bus timetables for 2023.

Transport Canberra bus timetable changes for Term 1, 2023

Improvements to the bus network and timetable will be implemented from Monday 30 January 2023 (aligning with the start of the school term). This includes refinements to a number of schools services based on school and community feedback.

The improvements ensure reliable services across the network which take into account construction associated with raising London Circuit in the city, the temporary Woden bus interchange and ongoing construction in the Woden town centre.

Light rail is continuing to run to a normal frequency.

School packs and timetables

Updated school packs and timetables are now available online to view and download. If your child is catching the bus to school, we recommend familiarising them with their school route so they know which stop the bus will pick them up from in the morning and where to get off at the end of the day.
