The Flexible Bus Service is available to Canberra residents who have limited access to public transport options
It is a basic bus service which is localised to particular zones. Designed specifically for residents such as the aged or people with a disability, the Flexible Bus Service is a free service which operates off a basic timetable, picking up residents from their home and taking them to local community service providers such as local shopping centres and hospitals.
