ACT’s Network 14 means changes to school services

Australian Capital Territory’s Network 14 implementation will see changes to some regular school bus routes

Information on new school bus services and regular routes that services schools under Action’s Network 14 is now available to the public.

Minister for Territory and Municipal Services Shane Rattenbury says the new Action network will see changes for most school students when it is introduced on September 1.

For Network 14 some school services are unchanged, some have been redesigned or merged and some have been replaced by regular route services to increase network efficiency and reinvest resources into peak network services.

"Over the past 12 months Action reviewed all school services and school service patronage within the current network," he says.

The Action website now has details of the services for each school and an information package is being sent to all local schools.

A dedicated phone line has also been established until September 12 to handle enquiries and information sessions will be offered to the schools most impacted by the changes.

Rattenbury says Network 14 - which has been developed utilising patronage data from the MyWay system - will provide more direct routes, better connections and increased frequency on both weekday and weekend services.

Advertising of the new school services has started and more information on Network 14 will be made available on August 18.
