On the Buses

Adelaide rediscovers its fabulous Obahn!

The State Government announced on Wednesday 10 June 2015 a revised plan to improve the unique guided busway service that follows the River Torrens Linear Park, a genuinely internationally significant park land system that hugs the riverine corridor.

Working with stakeholders, including Adelaide City Council, the project will realise improved public transport service to the city as well as provide a basis to improve and enhance the Adelaide Park Lands.

There will be some impacts, however working with Adelaide City Council, the Adelaide Botanic Gardens, and many other stakeholders, these will be minimised as announced today.

Some press from today’s announcement:
