Shuttle bus FAQs

Where can I find a timetable for the shuttle bus on my campus?

Buses do not run to a fixed timetable, but rather on a continuous loop. See route and schedule details at the top of this page.

What time does the shuttle bus start and finish each day?

The shuttle bus schedule lists the times the shuttle buses run. The commencing time is the time the first bus starts to drive the designated circuit at each campus. The latest time is the time it arrives back at the campus to finish for the day.

Does the shuttle bus arrive at each stop at a particular time?

No. To maximise the number of seats available to passengers each day, the shuttle buses travel in a continuous loop between the stops. Depending on traffic conditions and size of a campus route, it takes approximately 15-25 minutes for a bus to complete one loop. Please refer to the shuttle bus schedule above to locate the stops for each campus. To track a particular shuttle bus, please view the Shuttle Tracker (opens in a new window).
