WITH the expansion of the Flexible Bus Service more seniors and people with mobility issues living in Canberra’s inner north will now have access to transport. 

“Now, even more ACT seniors and people with a mobility difficulty will have access to the Flexible Bus Service to go shopping, attend medical appointments, visit people in hospitals and take part in social activities,” says Minister for Transport Canberra and City Services Meegan Fitzharris. 

The trial of the inner north service will operate to the current pick-up and drop-off method, allowing passengers to travel to:

  • The Canberra City Centre, utilising the City Bus Station as a drop off and pick up point
  • Dickson Shopping Centre
  • Inner north medical facilities; and
  • The Calvary Hospital (upon request or utilising Transport Canberra bus services to the Canberra Hospital).

In addition to this expansion, residents of Molonglo and Hall will also be able to make use of the service from Monday. 

Booking for the flexible bus service can be made by phoning 6205 3555 or by emailing fbs@act.gov.au .Bookings must be made two days prior to travel.
