April bus timetable update postponed

Bus timetable update postponed

The ACT Government will delay the rollout of the Network 19 update that was due to be implemented at the start of Term 2, and begin a range of measures to ensure the safety of staff and the community.

Canberrans are experiencing significant changes to daily routines as a result of COVID-19. Our focus must be on trying maintain services as far as possible and not creating confusion during this time by changing the bus timetable.

Transport Canberra will continue to operate the current bus and light rail timetable for the time being, with contingencies prepared should there be a need to reduce services due to COVID-19. We will implement the Network 19 update at an appropriate time in the future.
