From 1 May 2021, the bus route and timetable for route 74 will change.

On Saturday and Sunday only, the bus will change its route of travel at Zuccoli Parade, where it will:

  • travel onto Tuckeroo Boulevard and Peaflower Street
  • head back onto Zuccoli Parade then
  • continue onto the normal route of travel.

The timetable has also been adjusted to improve the connection to routes 8 and 9 at the Palmerston interchange.

From 12 April 2021, bus stop 86 on Progress Drive, Nightcliff, will temporarily relocate to Pavonia Place, Nightcliff.

This is due to construction works at John Stokes Square.

This change will be in effect for about six months.

What you should do

If you're taking:

  • outbound route 4 - use the temporary bus stop on Pavonia Place
  • route 11a - use bus stop 227 on Dickward Drive
  • the orbital services - use bus stop 245 on Progress Drive.

School buses will also collect and drop students off from Pavonia Place during this time.

You should allow extra time to get to the temporary bus stop if it is further out of your way.
