Canberra’s Rapid Bus Network

Minister for Transport Canberra and City Services, Meegan Fitzharris MLA, has today announced that in 2018 five new Rapid Routes will be introduced which will provide a better, 7 day public transport network.

The Rapid network will help residents and visitors get to and from events, sports matches, work, catching up with friends and family during the evening and at the weekend – all without taking the car.

These new rapids offer more frequent and direct services between our town centres, integrated with the Light Rail routes under construction and in planning, and will allows a seamless transition to connecting services.

With nine Rapids in total, routes will be straighter and faster between our town centres. All of this will deliver a better public transport experience. A public transport network that is better and runs seven days a week.

These new routes will operate seven days a week, providing faster and more frequent trips to key destinations at both peak and off-peak times – keeping Canberra free of congestion as our city continues to grow.
