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

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.

On Monday 28 November, Mackay's new-look TransLink bus network will launch.

A consultation report (PDF, 1.1MB) summarising community feedback is now available.

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.

Consultation with the local community closed on Sunday 16 October. The project team is currently reviewing all feedback to finalise the new bus network.

On 23 January 2017, we'll be making changes to local bus services in Nambour to provide passengers with improved connectivity and greater reliability.

TransLink is exploring new technology to create more transport choices for Queenslanders through the Demand Responsive Transport (DRT) project.

DRT represents a new transport option - customers can use booking technology, choose from the options offered, and have a service provider arrange a pick-up from their nominated location.

The journey then takes place along a flexible route, picking up additional customers along the way.

DRT combines the sharing aspects of public transport, with the convenience and flexibility of booked taxi/ride-share services.

TransLink will be trialling DRT in 2017. We will keep you updated on this project through this website and look forward to sharing our findings with you.

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 2016.

The Queensland Government has announced its response to the SEQ Fare Review with new fare prices and simplified eight zone network for South East Queensland.

During peak periods, traffic congestion along the Wynnum Road corridor can cause delays and late running to existing services. With this in mind, in March 2016, TransLink introduced bus route 238 as a new peak-only feeder service connecting customers from the Balmoral area to the Hawthorne ferry terminal and Morningside rail station.

In order to get more information about customers' satisfaction with the new service and to encourage more people to try it, TransLink staff will be conducting market research at selected bus stops in the Balmoral area during October and November 2016.

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.

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.

Completed projects

On Tuesday 4 October 2016, the Redcliffe Peninsula line opened, providing 650 new weekly train services over six new stations and a train every six to 12 minutes in peak times.

Parking at Thorneside station has been improved with the opening of a second park 'n' ride facility on Monday 7 November 2016.

Parking capacity at the station has increased from 134 to 180 spaces to better meet the needs of the growing community.

The bus stop outside the station has also been upgraded to feature a new shelter and customer seating.

In October 2016 we upgraded the TransLink website to load quicker and be more versatile for users on the go.

This included a new responsive layout so the site adapt's to your device's screen size, new page designs and how information is grouped.

Kawana bus station was completed in September 2016.

It provides passengers with improved facilities, such as shelter, additional seating, comprehensive passenger information, a go card top-up machine, lighting and security.

The Deception Bay bus station was completed in December 2015.

The new station located on Bay Avenue replaces the stop located at Deception Bay Shopping Centre and provides passengers with improved facilities, such as shelter, a go card top up machine, lighting and security.

The Victoria Point Jetty bus station upgrade was completed in October 2015. Customers transferring between Coochiemudlo Island ferries and TransLink services have access to a new fully-sheltered bus station with capacity for 2 buses. The upgrade includes additional seating and improved pedestrian access, safety features, lighting and 24-hour video surveillance. The station now meets TransLink's design standards for passenger comfort and operations.

The Warrigal Road Green Link was opened in July 2015 and is a bus-only link between Warrigal Road and Logan Road. It allows buses to bypass the Miles Platting Road, Padstow Road and Logan Road intersection to improve travel times and reliability of bus services. It has reduced traffic congestion for other motorists and road users.

The Cairns City bus station was opened in February 2015.The station features one platform on the eastern side of Lake Street for southbound services and one platform on the western side for northbound services. The station provides passengers with comfortable waiting facilities, including two high-quality shelters with additional seating and comprehensive passenger and network information with access to real-time bus information.

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.
