Yarrabilba residents are encouraged to have their go card ready for the start of TransLink’s newest service on Monday 29 June.

Route 587 will connect residents of Yarrabilba to TransLink’s South East Queensland (SEQ) public transport network at Loganlea Station.

Logan Coaches will operate the service, which is set to become Queensland’s first fully-electric bus route by the end of the year.

Head of TransLink Matt Longland said route 587 would deliver more trips per day and better service frequency for residents of one of the fastest-growing suburbs in the state.

“Logan Coaches have previously operated a service in conjunction with developer Lendlease and we’re excited to welcome them to the TransLink network,” Mr Longland said.

“Yarrabilba residents told us during community consultation last year that connections to the broader public transport network was their priority.

“Customers will be able to catch a train to Brisbane or the Gold Coast from Loganlea station, which is also serviced by buses travelling to Loganholme and Browns Plains.”

Mr Longland reminded customers the SEQ network was currently operating on a cashless trial in response to COVID-19.

“Customers can now purchase and top up a go card from IGA Yarrabilba (from 23 June),” he said. 

“On some bus services, customers may also be asked to board through the rear door.

“I encourage all customers to visit the TransLink website to ensure they are prepared for the start of the 587 service.”
