Have Your Say on Brisbane’s New Bus Network

A major revamp of Brisbane’s bus network is happening soon and Mount Gravatt residents are being asked to weigh in on the plans for the new bus network.



A community information session will be held for Mount Gravatt residents on Saturday, 19 November 2022 at the Mount Gravatt Showgrounds, Upper Community Hall.

Civic Cabinet Chair for Transport Ryan Murphy said Brisbane’s New Bus Network will ensure Brisbane, which population is expected to grow by almost 25 per cent by 2041, will have the services in place to meet future demand. The decision to invest in the fully electric, high-capacity Brisbane Metro will give Council greater flexibility to deliver more services, more often during peak periods.

Some of the key changes to Brisbane’s bus network include the addition of three new routes:

  • Route 26 – Griffith University station to RBWH station
  • Route P109 – Acacia Ridge to City
  • Route 182 – Upper Mt Gravatt station (Garden City) to Holland Park West

The redesign will also make the network more efficient by combining 27 routes and removing two due to duplication and low patronage, particularly Routes 145 and P151.

“We’re backing this up with record investment in public transport to support services throughout Brisbane’s suburbs,” Cr Murphy said.

“Brisbane’s New Bus Network redesigns services to connect customers to the two high-frequency Metro lines between Eight Mile Plains and  Roma Street and the Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital and the University of Queensland.

“There is also significant scope to expand the Metro further into Brisbane’s north and east through investment into the dedicated bus network.

Councillor Murphy added that Council will increase its public transport subsidy for bus services by 84 per cent to 183 million over the next few years to ensure that Brisbane can invest in additional services where they needed most.

Council is inviting Brisbane residents to have their say on the new bus services by attending one of the Council’s 22 community information sessions or going online to use the interactive map or play the Brisbane Metro Game.

“We want residents to join the conversation and provide their feedback to help us create the best possible transport network.”
