We've got our city circled!

1 year ago Mon 11th Jun 2018

City Circle routes 1 & 2 run through most areas of the city making it easy to get around without having to change buses in the city centre. You can also connect with other services along the route, making it even easier to get you to where you want to go. Click here to view the route map.

Buses run every 30 minutes during the day Monday to Friday and hourly on Saturday. City Circle 1 runs clockwise around the city, City Circle 2 runs anti-clockwise.
