Timetable adjustment - Route 3 Ocean Grove - City - Ross Creek

Valid from Monday, Aug 31, 2020 3:46 PM

This timetable has been adjusted by 5 minutes as it was often late to get to the hub. The bus will leave at the same time, so for example the 11:47am departure from Tomahawk Rd, Ocean Grove still leaves at that time but will get to the Bus Hub at 12:15pm instead of 12:10pm – 5 minutes later. We aim to have on-street timetables updated by Tuesday, but if anyone doesn’t realise they won’t miss the bus, but rather have to wait a wee bit longer.
