Light rail additional boost to peak hour services postponed

In line with the delay of the Network 19 update, the planned increased light rail frequency to 5 minutes in the morning peak, extension of the evening peak, and earlier commencement of services on Sundays will also be postponed.

Transport Canberra will continue to operate the current light rail timetable as we respond to COVID-19 and will review its implementation at a later date.
