The National Library is excited to be one of ten partners on a new free shuttle bus connecting some of Canberra’s major cultural institutions and places of interest. 

The Culture Loop bus is a joint six-month pilot and runs seven days a week from 9am to 5pm.

The Culture Loop will stop at the National Library of Australia, Questacon, Museum of Australia Democracy, Australian Parliament House, West Basin, Canberra Museum and Gallery, Canberra Centre, National Museum of Australia, National Film and Sound Archive, National Capital Exhibition and Canberra and Region Visitors Centre.

David Marshall, Chair of the Canberra Region Tourism Leaders Forum, said: “This Culture Loop shuttle bus will enable visitors to travel between most of the national institutions with ease, and without cost. It is a wonderful initiative which will be wholeheartedly welcomed by many visitors to the National Capital wishing to explore our national icons.” 

The shuttle bus which will take about one hour for a round trip, has a seating capacity of 39 people (plus 22 standing) with wheelchair access, air conditioning, front and centre double doors, and accessibility for people using mobility aids. 

The Culture Loop service will be provided by Capital Touring Services Pty Ltd.
