ACTION’s new bus network commences Monday 1 September 2014

Details of ACTION’s new bus network – Network 14 – are now available to view ahead of its Monday 1 September 2014 commencement.
The new network has been developed using patronage data from the MyWay ticketing system and significant community input. It will provide more direct routes, increased frequency, better connections and improved weekend services.
Some of the improvements under Network 14 include:
• greater alignment between weekday and weekend services meaning they run on similar routes as well as a 23 percent increase in weekend trips
• an 18 percent increase in daily trips through the Parliamentary Triangle
• a new direct service between Gungahlin and Belconnen
• morning peak service from Gungahlin to the City with no stops
• improved services between Erindale and Woden
• increased Xpresso services between Weston Creek and the City, including an Xpresso direct to the City from Cooleman Court
• improved services to Brindabella and Majura business parks, including a weekend service to Majura park
• a new service linking Molonglo to Woden and Cooleman Court and a peak hour Xpresso to Civic
• improved services into the Parliamentary Triangle, including two new dedicated morning peak services from Woden and services from Gungahlin which now extend into the Triangle rather than terminate in Civic
• a new weekday and weekend services to the National Arboretum
• a new service for Hume
• new services to Springbank Rise and Casey and improved services to Crace.
The start of the new network coincides with the start of the NXTBUS system, which allows for buses to be tracked via online, SMS, phone and digital displays.
