New bus timetables for all services
We've introduced new timetables to give you better service reliability. This means your bus may now arrive or depart at an earlier or later time, but there’ll be the same amount of services running.
Buses typically run from five to 15 minutes earlier or later than previously scheduled, depending on the route.
Please replan your journey or check your new timetable before travelling to avoid inconvenience.
Minor stop changes in the CBD
There's also been some minor changes to stops in the CBD:
- All CBD bound buses now end their run at a new stop within the Cairns Central shopping centre precinct. The new stop location is more comfortable, safe and accessible.
- Outbound services now start from Spence Street.
- There are also new stops on Florence Street, providing access to Munro Martin Parklands and the Cairns Performing Arts Centre.
- The bus stops on McLeod Street have been removed.
These changes may slightly alter your current walking distance to some locations.
