Transportation options in Canberra
Action buses are efficient and easy to use. It's the only public transportation mode in Canberra and one of the best in Australia. The bus lines serve most of the must-see attractions. Bus line 81 stops at the National Arboretum museum, Telstra Tower, the Zoo and the War Memorial. There is also a free city route, line 101 that passes by the Canberra hotspots. During weekends, the buses are less frequent.
Another transportation mode is the bicycle. It is mostly used to reach the suburbs and the area surrounding the Lake Burley Griffin.
If you find the bus system too complicated and hard to use, the quickest way to get around the city is either a car or taxi. However, Canberra taxis charge by the meter and can be expensive. Canberra taxis are available at designated areas, as well as, in front of hotels.
Trains depart from Kingston Railway Station, while intercity buses stop at Jolimont Centre.
Renting a car is one of the best transportation options if you're looking for a flexible solution. The city is connected with the undeveloped areas via roads and renting a car is the most appropriate transportation mode to travel.
