Ramshackle bus network - getting worse - State hides OTP data

Good Morning,

The ramshackle bus network continues to limp along.  A few Brisbane Nightlink services were cancelled overnight, no doubt marooning potential passengers.  Who cares hey?

Has it ever occurred to the great minds out there why there is no public reporting of bus OTP and service reliability in South East Queensland?  Because they are hiding failure.  There is in other states but not Queensland.

For example Adelaide Metro > https://www.adelaidemetro.com.au/About-us/Performance-Standards

It is an embarrassment and a cover up to be hiding the bus data.  The first steps in sorting out the festering mess would be to come clean with the reality there are issues, and set about sorting out the failed Brisbane bus network. Hiding the problems is just compounding into a political time-bomb.

We have shown how to do reform >  Brisbane - Bus network proposal - http://railbotforum.org/mbs/index.php?topic=11047.0

It is time the State Government showed some political courage and gave TransLink the authority and the resources to get cracking with reform.

Enough of drip feed policy and ' do nothing ' government.

The public is turning.

We have missed the bus long enough.

Best wishes
Robert

Western region bus no shows - chronic issue

Greetings,

There seems to be an increasing issue with bus reliability in the western region (Ipswich area).

This morning multiple bus service cancellations in the 500 bus group.

See > https://twitter.com/TransLinkSEQ

It has been getting worse for the past few months.

In the absence of public data for bus on time performance and reliability we are at the mercy of TransLink social media notifications and our own observations to understand the exact nature of the problem.

Can the Minister for Transport please conduct an investigation as to why bus reliability is so poor in the western region please?

Problems with these buses not showing up has a very significant adverse impact on the community.  The bus service frequency is very poor on most routes in the western region (exception 515), and cancellations can mean long waits for the next service and missed connections.

Thank you.

Best wishes
Robert
