Update on Public Transport to Cockington Green Gardens

Cockington Green - Friday, July 26, 2019
Late last year, we shared a story about the introduction of Light Rail between Civic and Gungahlin and A New Bus Network for Canberra. This was designed to provide information for guests who might need to access public transport to visit Cockington Green and Gold Creek Village. 

We have experimented with the new system which is now in place and we are pleased to report that it works albeit that the trip from Belconnen to Gold Creek is significantly longer than the now defunct service. Below is the latest information on transport options to and from the City and Belconnen. Of course, you may be staying elsewhere at which point you can access timetable information and the journey planner at www.transport.act.gov.au

The return trips to destinations would be utilising the same services in reverse. Timetabling and trip duration are similar. There are a variety of fares available, but the best way is to purchase a MyWay Card which calculates the cheapest fares. There are also discounts to concession card holders on production of poof of entitlement via Seniors Cards and other concession entitlement cards. You would need to produce these at authorised MyWay recharge agencies or via Access Canberra.
