Bus services in the Inner North will provide frequent, reliable connections to the City, Dickson Interchange and Belconnen Town Centre.
The Light Rail will provide a high capacity, frequent rapid link through the heart of the inner north providing easy access to the City, Dickson, Gungahlin, and key destinations along Northbourne Avenue.
Rapid 9 will provide a direct, frequent east-west spine connecting Watson to Belconnen via the Australian Catholic University, Dickson, Lyneham, Fern Hill and the University of Canberra.
Local services in the north will all connect Turner, O’Connor, Braddon, Ainslie, Watson and Lyneham to both the Dickson and City Interchanges where passengers can transfer to Light Rail or Rapid bus services to access destinations covering most of Canberra.
Local services will provide access to key employment and retail destinations to the east of the City including Majura Park and the Royal Military College.
