Transport

Travel within Canberra relies greatly on personal transport, mostly the private car. However the bus service (ACTION) is pretty good and is quite economical. Also there is a small network of cycle paths, which make safe and scenic travel a pleasure on a bicycle. There is one railway terminal at Kingston, with connections via Queanbeyan and Goulburn to Sydney or Melbourne. There is one airport, which is serviced by Qantas, Virgin Blue and Regional Express (Rex) and a number of regional air services.
