Gakuen Minami Junkan, a new TsukuBus course

A brand new Tsuku Bus, the city’s community bus service started its operation on September 1. The city has abolished the “センター循環(Tsukuba Center Rotatory Route),” and introduced the “学園南循環(Gakuen Minami Junkan or Gakuen South Rotatory Route).” This new course is similar to the former Tsuku Bus Route 5, but the newly added course only goes around the south “central Tsukuba” area. Those who live in Ninomiya, Umezono and Inari-mae areas can benefit from this new bus service for sure!

Please note that changes were made to all the other preexisting bus courses, so please pick up a new schedule/ route map at a nearby city hall office or community hall. OR you can download new route maps/schedules here.
