Media release 3rd July 2015SEQ: Enable Legacy Way for buses as a priority
RAIL Back On Track (http://backontrack.org
) a web based community support group for rail and public transport and an advocate for public transport passengers calls on the Brisbane City Council and State Government to immediately fix the failure to properly enable Legacy Way for the promised ' 2000 express buses daily '.
Robert Dow, Spokesman for RAIL Back On Track said:
"The 3 month trial of running the P443 Rocket Express inbound bus via Legacy Way has already demonstrated the massive potential benefit for western bus commuters that could be delivered by connecting Legacy Way to the Inner Northern Busway."
"Yesterday, the bus that departed stop 37 at Kenmore at 7.29am arrived at Roma St bus station at 7.50am. This is 19 minutes better than the normal timetable for this bus service. This is despite the bus having to take a circuitous route onto the INB at Herston."
"This failure with Legacy Way must never be repeated. It is a sad indictment on Council and Governments. The thing to do now is to fix it! This is a relatively low cost project with massive benefit."
"Any leaders in Queensland?"
