New free City connector bus service

Consultation has concluded

View the News Tab below for previous consultations on this project.

Council and the Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure (DPTI) are working together to improve free public transport services within the City and North Adelaide.

The new free City connector service will maintain use of existing Adelaide Connector or Adelaide Metro bus stops to minimise the loss of on-street parking spaces. However, many of the existing Adelaide Connector bus stops have not been designed for the larger buses and will need to be extended and upgraded.

This proposal aims to create a new and convenient free public transport service, linking key destinations within the City and North Adelaide to meet the needs of commuters, residents, students, tourists and visitors.

  • Stage 1 Consultation

    Following extensive research and consultation the new City Connector bus service was implemented on 27 January 2014. The new service has improved frequency, expanded operating times and increased passenger capacity. In addition many of the bus stops have been revised to accommodate the larger bus size and to comply with accessibility standards.

    We've received over 400 general comments for the proposed route, 60 comments on the bus stop locations and approximately 150 people attended an information sessions at one of our centres. All of your feedback, submissions and comments have been summarised in a report.

    We've worked closely together with Dept. of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure (DPTI) to address the key themes raised during the community consultation period. However feedback from some residents and business have highlighted concerns with a number of specific bus stop locations and potential local impact.

    Based on the feedback and the level of support for the new service,

    • the merging of the Adelaide Connector and 99C bus services is recommended to proceed; and
    • the proposed bus route and bus stops have been amended.
