Bus 317 operating Christmas Services

As normal bus services do not operate on Christmas Day, ACTION run free loop services on hourly frequencies between 9am and 4pmĀ (with a gap between 12noon and 1pm). In addition to this, an Blue Rapid (300 route) service is also run, allowing people to connect to the services across town if required.

The Christmas Day services are always run out of the one depot, and this is alternated between them from year to year. This is so that only one depot is required to be staffed on Christmas Day.

The service numbers have changed a few times in recent years as the networks changed. Each of the current routes are listed below
