It appears that 90 has been changed to Gungahlin Loop, pretty sure it was the City - AMC route before

Yes. An unnumbered AMC shuttle via former route 90 is listed on the actbus.net article which therefore means the GTFS. Hard copy bus books are available soon according to the Tuggers TO office.

It would appear the Shutdown Network will run a touch longer this year from 21st December to 8th January.

How so? Last time it was 22 Dec 2014 to 9 Jan 2015.

I've checked, there isn't a leap second due on 31 December.

Details of the Christmas Day routes have been updated on the ACTBus.net website.

Route 87 actually travels to Curtin first and Cooleman Court last.

The AMC shuttle has been left in, based on last year's route. Full details won't be known until the timetable is released by ACTION, since it was not included in the GTFS.
