What changes are there to the ACT's bus timetable from October?

Two new rapid bus services will begin in October, along with a raft of other changes to the ACT's ACTION bus timetable.

From October 7, buses will no longer stop at platforms 10 and 11 at the City Bus Station, to make way for works on Northbourne Plaza. The new Dickson Interchange will also open on this date.

A green rapid bus will start running on weekdays at least every 15 minutes between 7am-7pm from Civic to Woden, via Griffith, Manuka and Kingston.

A new black rapid will run on weekends at least every 15 minutes from 7am-7pm between Gungahlin and Belconnen.

Passengers can travel for free on the black and green rapids for the first two months of service, to encourage more people to try Canberra's public transport network.

The blue rapid service will be tightened up to ensure the Wanniassa park and ride is serviced seven days a week while a red rapid will run on weekends from Gungahlin to Civic.

The Weston Line route will start picking up passengers from Denman Prospect on weekdays.

Route five will be replaced by the green rapid and route four will be changed to provide better access to Fyshwick.

Suburban services will see temporary reductions in frequency during the morning peal to allow the network to take into account timing delays. Transport Canberra says the reductions will be minor.
