Welcome to CityLink

Attention all valued CityLink passengers

We want to hear from you – we value your opinion, so please fill out our survey!
Look out for our friendly CityLink staff – Tuesday 16 April/ Wednesday 17 April and Thursday 18 April- and have your say on the service


NEW TIMETABLE STARTS  1 October 2018, please ask your driver for a new timetable . 


Every CityLink trip departs from Rose Street Bus Terminus in the central city, travels a circular route out to a suburb and returns to Rose St.

To find out what time the buses leave Rose St, or to see where else and what time you can catch the bus along a route, click on your suburb to the right (“Choose your route”).  The departure times from Rose Street will be listed across the top, and major timing stops along the route will be shown.  The “All Stops” tab will show you every stop.

If you need to catch the bus along the route, click on the “Bus Stop Finder” tab. A map of the route will display, select “Monday to Friday” or “Saturday” morning or afternoon (depending what time of day you’re travelling) look for the stop nearest you, click on the arrow and the next three scheduled times will appear.  Please note these are scheduled times, not real time.

Changes to the CityLink bus ticket system mean existing Snapper cards – and all credit on them – must be used by the end of September

Snapper cards will no longer work from Monday 01 October and unused credit can’t be refunded. 

From October, CityLink fares will be cheaper (and cash only) until a new smartcard system is introduced early next year. 

Interim fares will be $2 adult and $1 child/high school student in uniform or with secondary school ID. (Please note, no uniform or ID,  no $1 fare)
