Woden, Weston Creek and Molonglo


Information on this page is about the future bus network. To find out how to use the current network, visit the Getting Around page.

Local bus services in Woden, Weston Creek and Molonglo will provide regular connections to the Woden Town Centre from all suburbs in the region.

The Woden Bus Station will provide connections to frequent, reliable Rapid routes servicing the City, Barton, Russell, Canberra Hospital and Kingston.

All bus routes in Weston Creek also provide links to both the Woden Bus Station and Cooleman Court, where passengers can transfer to Rapid 7 to the City.

Residents of Weston Creek and Molonlgo will now have improved access to the Tuggeranong Town Centre via local routes through Cooleman Court and Kambah.

The developing area of Molonglo Valley has a direct Rapid route to the City, as well as local service to Cooleman Court and Woden Town Centre. Note the Rapid route will initially run at a reduced frequency compared to other Rapid services until development provides an improved customer base. Local services are expected to be improved as the region develops and the population grows.
