Students at UQ Lakes station

From Monday 19 August you’ll notice more bus services travelling to the University of Queensland’s St Lucia Campus.

These changes are part of a two year trial to address the growing passenger demand to and from UQ.

This trial is a partnership between the Queensland Government and the University of Queensland.

Changes to services

Services to and from UQ are some of our network's busiest.

We'll be trialling the following changes to improve the travel experience for customers. 

Full timetable and route information will be published from Monday 22 July. Check back then for details. 

We'll be trialling additional services on the following routes:

  • Routes 66
  • Route 169
  • Route 402

Additional 402 services will only operate during university semesters. 

Whether you're an early bird or a night owl, there will be more options that suit your travel plans. 

There will be early morning route 169 services departing Eight Mile Plains from approximately 5.30am. 

Routes 66 and 169 will have additional services running until approximately 10.30pm each night. 

Route 28 will be a new dedicated short-trip service running between UQ Lakes and Langlands Park. 

We'll be trialling this route to improve the travel experience on the busy Eastern Busway corridor. 

If you're only travelling a short distance from UQ, use the 28 to connect to the train at Boggo Road or transfer to another bus service at Buranda. 

Stops serviced

Route 28 will only operate Monday to Friday during university semesters. 

Route 29 changes

Some route 29 services will be modified to create the new route 28.

These two routes will work together to manage the demand between UQ Lakes, Boggo Road, PA Hospital, Buranda (28) and Woolloongabba (29). 

There will be extra route 66 and 169 services on selected Saturday's during university exam periods. 

These services will run at higher frequency and for a greater span of hours to help students get to and from their exams. 

How do I catch these new services?

The University of Queensland service change trial starts on Monday 19 August

You will be able to see these new services in the journey planner from Monday 22 July.  Please check back then. 

Once the journey planner is updated, all you have to do is replan your travel to find your best travel option - just remember to set the travel date for after Monday 19 August.
