Canberra keep your distance on public transport


As COVID-19 restrictions start to ease, we remind the community that public transport use remains for essential travel only. This means travelling to and from school or work, the shops and appointments.

Your safety and that of our staff is our highest priority and increased cleaning is taking place across all areas of public transport including at stops, stations and within the vehicles.

All bus and light rail services continue to run, including all school services. If you need to travel with us please remember:

Physical distancing it’s your responsibility!

Travel at quieter times

If you need to travel think about when you do. Can you travel at quieter times?
