How we use social media
Transport Canberra oversees Canberra’s integrated public transport network including:
- bus services
- light rail construction and operation
- active travel facilities (including cycling)
- Park and Ride facilities.
Our social media platforms help us share information, news and updates about these and future services. We also share related information about the benefits of public transport.
We monitor our social media platforms Monday to Friday during business hours, and outside of business hours subject to staff availability. We will do our best to respond to any messages received via these informal platforms. If you require a formal response, please contact us.
