As COVID-19 restrictions start to ease over the coming weeks and months, we will see a gradual return to public transport. The ACT Government is continuing to encourage the community to only use bus and light rail services if absolutely necessary.
Walking, running or riding to work will reduce pressure on our public transport system and the road network. Consider walking, running or cycling if you can.
Walk or run to work
- Check your proximity to your workplace with Journey Planner. You may find it's closer than you think, particularly when you take shortcuts through paths and laneways. As a guide, it takes around 20 minutes to walk 2km.
- Download a cycling or walking map.
- Get prepared. Make plans to leave clothing at work the day before, or pack a backpack. Check your workplace's end-of-trip facilities.
Ride to work
Bike & Ride
Try using alternate modes of travel or combine them to ease congestion on our public transport network. Riding a bike is a great way to connect with a bus or light rail service by using one of our Bike & Ride locations.
You can ride your bike and secure it to a bike rail or at one of our six secure cages. You can also take it on board as you continue your journey on a bus or the light rail.
To use Bike and Ride:
- use the Journey Planner or network map to find a convenient stop(s)
- register your MyWay card to access a secure bike cage
- bring a lock from home and secure your bicycle to a bike rail
- take your bike with you using the bike rack at the front of the bus, or the rack within the light rail carriage
Park & Ride
Our Park & Ride locations provide another convenient option for using active travel for your commute. For convenience, use an allocated free parking space to park your car before using a bus or light rail service to complete your journey. You’ll be helping to reduce congestion on ACT roads and the demand for parking in the city and other major business areas.
