DPS aims to provide sustainable transport options for anyone travelling to or from Parliament House, and encourage their use.
You can reach Parliament House easily by bus. Several ACTION routes service Parliament House and surrounding areas as described in the Parliament House Bus Services Brochure. Information on ticketing and timetables is available through the ACTION Bus website. You can also buy tickets online through this website. At the moment, there is no bus ticket retailer at Parliament House.
Travelling to work by bicycle is an excellent way to reduce your environmental footprint, save money and keep healthy.
Bike racks are located in each of the underground car parks. If you are a visitor, then please use the bike racks in the public car park, underneath the front forecourt. If you are working at Parliament House, then your relevant office services can provide you information on change rooms and showers.
Information on Canberra cycle routes can be found here: Canberra cycle map.
This Bicycle and Pedestrian Access Map shows recommended routes for accessing Parliament House by bicycle. Please remember to dismount your bike as you enter the car parks (the boom gates are potentially a hazard to cyclists). If you are riding on the road you must obey all road rules.
If your trip is too far to ride all the way, or you just don’t feel like riding home, then use the ACTION Bike’n’Ride service which lets you carry your bike on the bus. It’s easy to use and best of all, free.
