Roadworks affecting public transport Roadworks affecting public transport

While AT Metro and our bus operators try to minimise disruption to your travel plans, sometimes it is necessary for buses to detour using surrounding roads to avoid an area where roadworks occur. This may cause delays to services and/or bus stops being temporarily closed or relocated.
