The launch of the route coincides with the establishment of the new “Transport Canberra” agency, which brings Capital Metro and ACTION together into a single government body.
The new loop service will provide a convenient link to highly-frequented areas of the CBD such as the City Bus Station, Canberra Centre, Braddon precinct, Northbourne Avenue, the Australian National University and New Acton precinct. It will run between 7am and 7pm weekdays, with buses departing approximately every 10 minutes.
The City Loop will provide a convenient ‘turn up and go’ weekday service for commuters and will connect with high frequency Red and Blue Rapid services and buses to the Parliamentary Triangle. The service will support local businesses and help Canberrans travel around popular areas in the CBD for free.
