Projects & initiatives

 

One of our main goals is to improve your public transport experience. To do this, we're upgrading the network, building new infrastructure and changing the way we operate.

Current projects

Moreton Bay Rail Link

Moreton Bay Rail Link is opening Tuesday 4 October!

This once-in-a-generation project will transform the region, delivering a 14-kilometre dual-track passenger rail line between Lawnton and Kippa-Ring.

There will be 6 new stations: Kallangur, Murrumba Downs, Mango Hill, Mango Hill East, Rothwell and Kippa-Ring.

To provide an integrated network for the region, some service changes will occur on the local bus network.

Find out more about your new network!

Queen's Wharf Brisbane

From late 2016, there’ll be changes to where your bus service travels, stops and leaves the CBD, as part of the Queen’s Wharf Brisbane Integrated Resort development.

Due to permanent closure of Queens Wharf Road and temporary closure of William Street, bus routes that use these roads will be affected – some in both directions. Within the CBD these services and customers will be required to travel via alternative routes and may stop at different locations.

We will aim to minimise inconvenience where possible for our customers ensuring there will be no change to frequency for your service.

Improving Toowoomba's bus network

TransLink is launching in Toowoomba next year and urban buses will change to provide you with more services, better reliability and improved connectivity.

Our proposed network will provide you with new and improved routes, Sunday services, longer operating hours, extended coverage and more frequent trips to key areas of interest.

We’d love your feedback on our proposed bus network! Visit haveyoursay.translink.com.au to find your nearest information session and to complete our online survey. Feedback closes on Sunday 16 October.

Mackay Bus Service Improvement Project

On Monday 28 November, TransLink will launch in Mackay and bus services will change to provide customers with improved public transport.

Find out how we've used your feedback to shape a better bus network for Mackay.

Victoria Point Central bus station

Thanks for having your say on the proposed relocation and upgrade of Victoria Point Central bus station. The proposed station was designed to increase capacity and provide improved network efficiency and facilities for passengers.

Consultation has now closed. A report will be prepared and will be available here in late September.

Nambour bus network review

In early 2017, we'll be making changes to local bus services in Nambour to provide passengers with improved connectivity and greater reliability.

The bus network review proposes changes to five existing bus services and the introduction of two new bus services.

Consultation with the local community was completed in August 2016. The project team is currently reviewing all feedback to finalise the new bus network.

In early 2017, bus services will change on the Sunshine Coast with the opening of the new Sunshine Coast University Hospital (SCUH).

This service change proposes changes to three existing bus services and the introduction of one new bus service.

Consultation with the local community was completed in August 2016. The project team is currently reviewing all feedback to finalise the bus service changes.

TransLink website refresh

We're upgrading the TransLink website to load quicker and be more versatile for users on the go.

Over the next few months, we will be improving the page design and changing how we group information on the website. Watch this (web)space!

Redland Bay Marina station

We're one step closer to delivering the new Redland Bay Marina bus station, with construction expected to commence in early June 2016. Thanks to your feedback and our collaboration with Redland City Council and State Government agencies, the design for the new station is now complete and ready for delivery.

National Disability Insurance Scheme transport components

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) will transform the way Queenslanders with disability are supported and change the way disability services are funded and delivered.

The Department of Transport and Main Roads will continue to deliver services and programs to all of our clients and members while the NDIS is introduced in Queensland.

The NDIS will result in changes to the administration of some of the department’s programs for people with disability who become NDIS participants.

Real-time information provides accurate predictions for the next services departing from your stop or station. It allows passengers to make public transport choices based on actual travel time, not just scheduled times which may vary depending on traffic or weather conditions.
