Industrial action will impact Brisbane City Council (BCC) bus services on Thursday 27 July and Friday 28 July. This includes most routes between 29 and 599 and some school services - see full list below. 

The action is due to a dispute between BCC bus services and the Rail Tram and Bus Union and relates to BCC bus services only. 

Unfortunately the Journey Planner may not have up-to-date BCC bus information. You can still use the Journey Planner to arrange alternative transport by de-selecting bus options. 

Due to the extent of this action, real-time bus information through the app and website may be unreliable. 

Thursday 27 July

All Brisbane City Council (BCC) bus services are running. Some drivers may not collect fares but public transport is not free today.

Please attempt to touch on and off as usual or buy a paper ticket from a ticketing machine. 

Friday 28 July

A work stoppage will be in place between 2pm and 6pm on Friday afternoon. Some bus services will run however all BCC bus passengers should expect disruptions between 1pm and 7pm. We’ll continue to monitor the situation and keep this page updated with the latest information. 

Travel tips for Friday:

  • Travel outside the afternoon peak.
  • Consider another mode (such as train or ferry) if available to you. There will be additional CityCat services - see details below.
  • Allow more time to get to your destination. 
  • Journey Planner and real-time through the app may be unreliable for BCC bus service information. 
  • Other bus transport providers will operate as normal, but may experience crowding. 
  • Consider walking or cycling to reach your destination.
  • Avoid unnecessary travel or consider working from home, if possible.

School services

If you or your child catches a Brisbane City Council school bus service, we recommend arranging alternative transport, if possible.

Additional CityCat services

There will be some additional CityCat services during the disruption. Regularly timetabled CityCat services will also run.
