Avoid the hassle of driving and parking at Skyfire this Saturday, 18 March 2017, by catching one of Transport Canberra’s special Skyfire services to and from the event.

“Transport Canberra, again in partnership with Hit 104.7, will provide additional services to take Canberrans to Lake Burley Griffin for this great event, with two special Skyfire services in place departing major bus stations regularly,” Director, Public Transport Operations, Ian McGlinn, said.

“Regular fares apply for all travel to the event, with free chartered return services to major bus stations after the fireworks event.

“Additional Blue Rapid 900 services will be in service from major bus stations, giving you plenty of time to set up, sit back and relax for the big event. Blue Rapid 900 services will depart every 15 minutes or better from 3.30 pm. Alternatively Gungahlin residents can catch a 950, 956 or 958 and transfer onto a southbound Blue Rapid 900 from Platform 1 in the City to reach Regatta Point or the Albert Hall. Regular fares apply.

“Hit 104.7 have partnered with Transport Canberra to provide free return chartered services to run to major bus stations after the event, including:

  • Belconnen Bus Stations
  • City Bus Station
  • Tuggeranong Bus Station (via Mawson Park & Ride and Erindale)
  • Woden Bus Station
  • Gungahlin Bus Station
  • Tuggeranong Bus Station (Via Mawson Park & Ride)

These services will depart regularly from both the Regatta Point bus stops on Commonwealth Avenue and Langton Crescent, Parkes, at the Treasury Building car park following the fireworks event.

“Free return services to the City, Belconnen and Gungahlin will depart on the western side of Commonwealth Avenue and Langton Crescent. Services to Woden, Erindale and Tuggeranong will depart from the eastern side of Commonwealth Avenue and Langton Crescent.

“Passengers are also encouraged to take advantage of Park & Ride facilities where possible. Park & Ride offers allocated parking spaces for passengers to park their car before catching a bus to complete their journey. Find your Park & Ride location and connect with Transport Canberra bus services to and from the event.

“With the extra Skyfire services the Transport Canberra team are delivering, it will be easy to leave the car at home and catch a bus. The ACT Government is committed to delivering a public transport system that is convenient, efficient, affordable and reliable.”
