Catching the bus

ANU is well serviced by buses, with over thirty routes travelling close to and through campus. Route 3 and Route 7 travel through the middle of the ANU campus on weekdays and Route 934 on weekends.

The Blue Rapid express bus travels between Tuggeranong, Woden, Civic and Belconnen town centres with stops near campus. Buses depart every 5-8 minutes on weekdays between 7am - 7pm and every 15 minutes on evenings and weekends.

Bus tickets

MyWay card is the cheapest and easiest way to pay for bus trips. Cards can be purchased and recharged at most newsagents and Canberra Connect shopfronts. They can be recharged online and over the phone. You can also pay for bus trips with cash on board the bus.


ACTION's NXTBUS service tracks the location of your bus in real time. Every bus stop has an ID number. You can search for bus stop IDs on the NXTBUS website. NXTBUS can also tell you if the bus has a bike rack, easy access or is delayed or cancelled via SMS.

Access to bicycle enclosures is via a registered MyWay card. Most ACTION buses are fitted with a bicycle carrier on the front of the bus with space for two bicycles.
