Re: Brisbane Explorer

The Bus Tour industry is only seasonal, unfortunately trying to run 2/3 buses 12 trips a day 7 days a week and a coaster up and back to Mt Coot-tha was never going to cut it. The deckers only had a very limited route due to height restrictions in some areas of the city. Traffic snarls most days of t...

Re: Wulkuraka Maintenance Centre

I believe the drivers cannot see the end of platform markers from the seated position, so they are almost useless and have stopped the contract?

Re: Wrong way

The driver made a mistake, the driver did the right thing, by going back and picking up/dropping of the passengers that were on the service. With the last 5 years of major changes and those coming up in Jan 2017, you may see the occasional mistake being made. Moreton :wink:

Re: Queens Wharf Redevelopment changing bus routes

Many route times and changes taking effect from last Monday 12/12/16, this is having a positive effect for services that start outside the city. The trouble is when these services all get to the city to unload passengers and the CBD is choked by Office executives in Audis,C Class Mercs,BMWx5s, the o...

Experienced Operators that know and understand traffic flows in the CBD, can make quite a difference in travel times for commuters. Getting private cars out of the CBD in peak times could save bus travel times up to 15/20 minutes better, but to much money being made by Parking Stations to ever see t...
