      Nah its a short trunk route and rarely people will go up since thier stop is nearby which causes the bus to get crowded easily

    Eastlace is located along Canberra Link where there is already bus 117 and 169 currently.

    Hope it can consider passing through Wellington Circle and Montreal Link instead (duplicate of 882) . The frequency in the morning peak can be bad and bus stop can be crowded at times.

    To whom it may concern,

    Will the bus 883 pass through BTO Eastlace as well.
    or there will be another bus service that will serve the canberra BTO residents .
    We do hope at least there will be 2 bus service of choices for us.
    Thank you
