Platform 1 will have its own access point from Roma Street whilst Platform 2 access is as per normal. This means that anyone transferring ...

Re: Transport for Brisbane Observations 2020

Have confirmed we are now up to at least1666 in artics (ABC bus sales data) I’m sure BT Enthusiast (and myself of course) are looking forward to the recommencement of the delivery of rigid B8s!! 😀 I am too - like to ride on each new bus - pity that the QUT buses 2880, 2881 and 2882 are never on nor...

Re: Rail & Private Operator Observations 2019/2020

Thank You Cazza. Yeah, they run ALOT of School Routes. And it appears they always have the same buses run the same school routes! An instesting way to operate... Not unusual for some operators - for instance, the TfB services operated by Hornibrook in the northern part of Brisbane (routes 326 and 3...

Re: Transport for Brisbane Observations 2020

Any news on the Volgren plant reopening? Surely it must be soon! I don't believe that it ever closed - just BT has not been putting the new artics on the road. The new artics are now sitting at Eagle Farm Depot - some in City Glider livery and some in normal livery. Maybe they will be on the road o...

Re: Transport for Brisbane Observations 2020

The reason as to why SWT buses have T on them is because, they are all maintained, and I am pretty sure they're stored at Toowong depot occasionally. Not a BT/SWT employee so don't question my facts please. :lol: More a case that the buses were Toowong buses prior to going to SWT and the T was neve...

Re: Brisbane Metro

I am still very skeptical about the need for artics on the Blue Glider - before COVID, whenever I saw a full Blue Glider, the next one or two (which often would be a minute behind) would be near empty - I think TfB looked at the number of full Blue Gliders to make the decision to use artics rather t...

Re: Brisbane Metro

It is a pity that the two main interchanges on the northside (Chermside and Toombul) are not really built to handle the longer buses.

Do you know which terminus is the problem with HCV for the Blue Glider?

Re: Routes terminating at Cultural Centre Bus Stn

The terminus for the northside buses is actually in Hope Street, South Brisbane. There is space for maybe five buses in Hope Street Many operators instead use Grey Street outside the Queensland Museum rather than Hope Street; in part due to the restricted space in Hope Street. The only northside bus...

Re: Transport for Brisbane Observations 2020

Cazza - On a quick review, I would suggest the following adjustments to your list:

29 - C does some services too.
234 - serviced by C and S.
308 - serviced by E, not V
329 - serviced by V
376 - services by E and V.

T2894 is the last of the current B8 rigids.

Newest bus is S1652, the second of the new B8 artics.
