Projects and 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.
Infrastructure project map
We're constantly improving our network to make it easier for you to use public transport.
Use our interactive map to discover the public transport infrastructure improvement projects currently underway across the TransLink network. This includes updates to existing infrastructure and completely new projects.
Projects will remain on the map for up to 12 months after completion.

The Department of Transport and Main Roads (TMR) has released the Draft Queensland Transport Strategy (QTS).
The Draft QTS is the government’s 30-year vision for transport and details how global and national trends will impact Queensland in the future. It discusses how new transport technologies – such as drones, electric vehicles and increasing levels of automation – can substantially transform the transport system.
Community consultation for the draft strategy was held from 29 March to 24 May 2019 with feedback received being used to inform the development of the final strategy.

The NDIS will result in changes to the administration of some of the department's programs for people with disability who become NDIS participants.
The Public Transport Fares Advisory Panel (The Panel) was established as a recommendation of the South East Queensland Fare Review Taskforce.

Panel members have been appointed for a period of 12 months and will meet twice a year. Additional meetings are possible if directed by the Minister. TransLink Division (TransLink) of TMR will perform the role of Secretariat for the Panel.

Small blue metal plates, featuring Braille, tactile and QR code bus stop numbers, have been added to select inner-city bus stops and bus stations.
The plates are fixed to the sides of the blade style bus stops and display the bus stop number in Braille, to assist customers with vision impairment identify the stop. Above the Braille the stop number is also displayed in white high contrast tactile text and below the braille the same information is available through use of a QR code.
The new Braille, tactile and QR code stop numbers have been introduced to assist customers with vision impairment identify bus stops where there are a high number of stops in proximity. This has mainly occurred in inner city areas and large bus stations. In 2020-21, we're looking at extending Braille, tactile and QR codes at bus stops further outside inner city locations, including some regional areas.
