Latest update

At Transport Canberra our priority is the safety of customers and staff and we are continuing to provide the services which the community rely on each day.

We have implemented an increased cleaning regime on buses and light rail vehicles as well as at high-traffic areas such as stops and interchanges. We have also implemented a range of other measures such as the use of rear doors on buses, automatic opening of doors on light rail vehicles at all stops, and closing the front seat on buses to create distance between the driver and passengers.

For more details on how Transport Canberra is responding to COVID-19, as well as other vital information from across the ACT Government please visit the ACT Government's COVID-19 website.
