School timetable changes Term 3 2020

Transport Canberra updated timetables for bus services on Saturday 18 July 2020.

There are minor changes for all students travelling to and from school on public transport across Canberra from the first day of Term 3, 2020 (Monday 20 July 2020). In most cases, this means that students catch the same service from the same stop, but the times that services arrive and leave may have changed.

We know school students need to travel during our peak travel times to get to and from school on time. These changes help make public transport in Canberra easier to use and provide more services, giving people more opportunity to spread out their travel as we recover from COVID-19.

All schools, parents and students can find out more about the specific changes by:
