Weekend Bus Services

Weekend Bus Services

Transport Canberra is improving our bus network by providing more services, more often.

We acknowledge we are experiencing bus service disruptions on weekends, whilst we recruit more drivers, and we apologise to customers for any inconvenience during this time.

Information on weekend services is available and we urge passengers to look at the NXTBUS website which provides real time service information (within a 90 minute window), or contact us on 13 17 10 where we can help plan weekend trips as operators have information on what services run.

If you are interested in becoming a bus driver please visit our Jobs page.
