Route 63 - will detour via the one-way south and Hanover St, before turning onto Great King St.

There will be a temporary stop setup outside 95 Hanover St (Henry's).

The services will keep their existing detours for Logan Park and Helensburgh bound services, as Great King St northbound lane remains closed.

We apologise for the inconvenience this may cause, and ask passengers who use the service to access the Hospital South stop to be aware of this upcoming closure and share with their network.

🚌 Route 37/38 (Concord) information 🚌

Valid from Monday, Jul 25, 2022 7:00 AM

Passengers who usually travel on the morning services from Concord, should be aware that the new reduced timetables may mean a change to where you need to catch the bus from.
The relates specifically to passengers using the 7.50am service from Concord to University.

The new timetable doesn't have an earlier connecting route 38 service, which turns into a route 37 service, meaning it won't run the loop around Stevenson Rd and Mulford St before starting from Main South Rd 12.

The 7.50am route 37 service to University will start from 12 Main South Rd.
