We are working to increase the frequency of local bus services on Saturdays as part of this timetable update.
Since the ACT Government released the Weekend Bus Service Reliability Action Plan in September 2019, we have been working to improve the reliability of weekend bus services by recruiting more drivers, enabling more drivers to work on weekends.
As a result, Transport Canberra is now consistently meeting its reliability target for weekend bus services. Since the beginning of November 2019, Transport Canberra has delivered 99.9% of all scheduled weekend bus services and met its target of 99.5% every weekend.
We are now in a position to start to increase the frequency of local bus services on Saturdays as part of this timetable update.
We will continue to review increasing the frequency of local bus services on weekends once we are sure they can be reliably delivered.
