“The Culture Loop”, a new free shuttle bus service jointly funded by a number of Canberra’s top cultural institutions, is up and running.

A round trip will take about an hour and locals and visitors will be able to hop on and off the shuttle bus without the hassle of finding parking at each destination.

The first Culture Loop shuttle left Canberra Museum and Gallery at 9am yesterday (20 December 2018).

The service will operate initially for a six-month trial, seven days a week from 9am to 5pm.

The Culture Loop bus was operated by Capital Touring Services Pty Ltd.
(Accreditation: ACTBS020TC)

The free Culture Loop service ceased operations in 2020 due in part to the temporary closure of some of the institutions visited during Covid-19.
An Explorer Bus offering five daily departures (four days a week) commenced operations in late 2020. For details of route and ticketing visit: Red Explorer Loop Bus
