Canberra’s entire public transport network has undergone a major overhaul which means extensive changes and improvements to the way students travel to school using dedicated public transport services in 2019. Transport Canberra will release detailed school and general bus timetables and route information in early 2019 before the new bus network starts in 2019.

The school services planned as part of the New Bus Network have been designed based on a new School Bus Services Policy (PDF 318KB).

The majority of students in Canberra travel to school by car. This means that many students are missing out on the health benefits of active travel and the opportunity to become proficient in public transport use. It also means many schools are congested with traffic around bell times. These new school services will ensure all students will be at their school destination prior to bell times.

The new public transport network includes 222 dedicated school bus services every school day. This is a similar number to today’s network, and 78 more dedicated school services than were included in the consultation network released in June. These services are simpler and easier for students, with most services running both morning and afternoon and using the same route number.

In the new network, the way Transport Canberra runs school buses will change. School bus services will generally be shorter to reduce the time it takes students to get to school, and they will provide more opportunities for students to connect to local and Rapid services. Additionally, local and Rapid services have been designed to provide good access to as many schools as possible across our city, so that more students at more schools can get to school by public transport.
