A message from Transport Canberra. Buses will run a revised bus timetable over the Christmas and New Year period, starting from Monday 19 December 2016 until Friday 6 January 2017 inclusive.

The Christmas holiday timetable will run over three weeks to reflect decreased passenger demand during the festive season. A Saturday timetable will be in place for both Christmas Eve, and New Year’s Eve.

A Sunday timetable is in place for Boxing Day, Tuesday 27 December, New Year’s Day and Monday 2 January 2017. A holiday timetable will be in place for the remainder of the three week revised schedule.

ACTION will again this year provide free travel all day on Christmas Day with a special timetable servicing all major bus stations. There will also be special return services to the Alexander Maconochie Centre, from Platform 1 in the City Bus Station.

The revised timetable can be viewed, downloaded and printed from the Transport Canberra website at www.transport.act.gov.au. A limited number of hardcopy timetables will be available at major Bus Stations week commencing Monday 12 December 2016.

Alternatively you can call the Transport Canberra Information Line during operating hours on 13 17 10 for further details. You can also check NXTBUS for real time information over the festive season and plan your journey with Transit for Google Maps.
