29 July 2009: SEQ: Where's our Buz?

SEQ: Where's our Buz?

RAIL Back On Track (http://backontrack.org) a web based community support group for rail and public transport and an advocate for public transport commuters has called for a new innovative Buz route. Rail Back On Track members are out on buses, trains and ferries every day observing how our public transport system is performing, and proposing constructive solutions to keep it that way!

Robert Dow, spokesperson for RAIL Back On Track said:

"In a city like Brisbane, more cross-city services are needed if pubic transport is to be the mode of choice over the car."

"Rail Back on Track members are calling for a 12 week trial of an extended and combined route 66; presently Kelvin Grove-CBD-Wooloongabba, and route 109; presently City-UQ lakes, to create a more efficient, high-frequency, cross-city mass transit service."

"This new, combined route will service three hospitals (Royal Childrens, Mater, P.A), two universities; QUT and UQ, and will be accessible from any train route (Roma Street)."

An outline of the proposed route is below:

RCH
QUT
Normanby
Roma St
KGSBS
Cultural Centre
Southbank
Mater Hill
P.A Hospital
Park Rd
U.Q Lakes

"By combining these two routes, no extra buses are required; the extra money saved can then be used to extend the service.

"We congratulate Translink and the Queensland Government on the delivery of the new busway stations that will enable our proposal to work.

"Our members, and no doubt all public transport commuters, look forward to TransLink's response."

The 'Clean Air Force', get it  ;)
How ironic this slogan appears on the side of many a BT bus
Negative people... have a problem for every solution.
