Maps of station stops

This existing service travels between Nudgee and Brisbane City, with stops at Virginia station, Toombul interchange and Fortitude Valley along the way.

Depending on your destination, it may be faster than catching route 316 to Northgate and transferring to the train there.

Route 306 runs 7 days a week, including public holidays. 

If you normally park at Banyo station, consider using nearby Northgate or Virginia stations instead. 

Northgate is serviced by Caboolture, Redcliffe Peninsula, Shorncliffe and Sunshine Coast lines. 

Virginia is serviced by Redcliffe Peninsula line services.
