Bus 044 was one of the newest members of the fleet in 1962.
Bus 044 was one of the newest members of the fleet in 1962.

The Canberra road system back in 1962 was a little different to the road system in 2013. For example Barry Drive wasn’t built, so Boldrewood Street connected with Northbourne Avenue and the roads around Duntroon and Pialligo were still windy bush tracks.

Other little quirks included the last bus on a Saturday night would wait for the theatre to finish before departing the City. With the second last bus leaving around 20:00 to 21:00 & the last bus leaving at 23:00.
