Students and staff at The University of Queensland’s St Lucia campus will soon have more bus services to choose from.
In a million dollar partnership with TransLink and UQ, the government has announced a two year trial of additional and later bus services on popular routes to and from the St Lucia campus.
UQ’s Chief Operating Officer Greg Pringle said the changes would make a huge difference to the campus community.
“A new route will boost services on a much-used part of the network and make traveling to and from the St Lucia campus a much easier proposition,” Mr Pringle said.
“We’ve listened to the concerns of the University community and worked in partnership with TransLink to improve both the frequency of services and the number of options available.
"We're confident the extra public transport options, the additions to the late night timetable and the extra services during exam Saturdays throughout the academic year will be quickly adopted.
"The improved services are also part of UQ's ongoing commitment to sustainability, to encourage those commuting to and from campus to choose public transport.”
Full details, including timetables and route changes will be published on the TransLink website from Monday 22 July on www.translink.com.au.
The new services will begin from Monday 19 August.
