Yo.  I am having a pre-emptive poke  :P

Based on their tracker track record (like that?) I don't expect we will see it until around June 2018 if we are lucky.

More evidence of the dysfunction in the Transport Portfolio

Good Morning,

In another sign of the dysfunction and general incompetence that characterises the Transport Portfolio there has been no publication of the quarterly TransLink Tracker since the Q4 2016-17 one ( https://publications.qld.gov.au/dataset/translink-division-quarterly-reports accessed 2am 11th May 2018 ). We are now into Q4 2017-18, almost a year behind now. In a similar tardy fashion the last monthly TransLink public transport performance snapshot was the December 2017 publication, now well into May 2018 ( https://publications.qld.gov.au/dataset/translink-public-transport-performance-snapshots accessed 2am 11th May 2018 ).

There is not much public transport data published in Queensland.  Both the Tracker and Snapshots are a limited cryptic data set that really is borderline in terms of its actual utility.  Nonetheless, it is all we get. Lack of publication just reinforces the perception of incompetence and contempt the public transport authorities have for the public.

Will we see these publications published today?  The usual modus operandi is to publish these documents late on a Friday, unannounced of course.  Another pointer to the contempt for the public that prevails the portfolio.

Enjoy the Friday rail fail timetable today!  Day 588 of the ongoing rail fail. The first wave of cancellations associated with rail fail
happened on 30th September 2016. Public has been suffering cancellations, delays and reduced service since then.

Best wishes,
Robert

Brisbanetimes --> 1 million fewer public transport trips during Brisbane's bus strikes



Quote
Hoards of people abandoned public transport during last year's Brisbane bus strikes, with almost 1 million fewer trips over three months across all modes of transport.

There were 1.39 million fewer bus trips in south-east Queensland from July to September, compared with the same quarter the previous year.

At the same time, there were 304,000 extra train trips, 86,000 more tram trips and 42,000 more ferry trips.

But that still leaves almost 1 million fewer trips being taken by public transport over the quarter, with many commuters likely forced into cars, adding to peak-hour congestion.

TransLink attributed the drop in patronage from July to September to industrial action on Brisbane City Council's bus services.

During the strikes, bus drivers let passengers ride for free half-a-dozen times, with drivers from some depots walking off the job on other days, while services were heavily impacted on a Friday afternoon in July.

The free fares cost taxpayers more than $3.5 million, with the action estimated to cost more than $500,000 each action.

Brisbane City Council reached a wage deal with drivers in September, which included a 2.5 per cent wage increase, with voting on the new EBA closing this Friday.

Rail Tram and Bus Union assistant state secretary Tom Brown said he was surprised by the drop in patronage on the buses.

"I thought, gosh, yeah but certainly pleasantly surprised that we had that impact, contrary to the reports from council that there was no impact, this is proof to the contrary," he said.

Following a strike in July, lord mayor Graham Quirk said the industrial action "wasn't as bad as expected", but that there were still delays.

Mr Brown said some people may have chosen to drive due to the disruption, with people uncertain when the buses were running.

However, he said 99.9 per cent of the feedback from commuters during the industrial action was supportive.

"I recall standing outside the Virginia depot on one of the Friday afternoons and just getting toots and waves from the traffic as it drove past and calls of support," Mr Brown said.

During the following quarter, October to December, patronage on the south-east Queensland buses dropped by another 1 million trips.

But compared with the same quarter the previous year, there were actually half-a-million more trips in October to December 2017 compared with October to December 2016.

TransLink said a reduction in patronage numbers across all modes in October to December was consistent with the previous year's trend, and put the dip down to seasonal changes, for example school holidays.

Rail advocate Robert Dow said patronage appeared to have stabilised by the end of 2017.

However, Mr Brown said the dip in October to December could also be on the back of the union's campaign for better safety for drivers.

"The campaign highlighted the safety aspects on buses and it resonated with the public, and maybe they're not coming back until we've got the safety and security again," he said.

Brisbane deputy mayor Adrian Schrinner said passengers had since returned to buses.

"Unfortunately during the bus driver strikes, thousands of commuters were impacted with missed services and many more chose to avoid using public transport due to the uncertainty," Cr Schrinner said.

"Since this time, passenger have returned to bus services and numbers are slowly on the rise."

Cr Schrinner said in order for public transport patronage to continue to grow, council was calling on the state government to make fares more affordable.

A spokesman for Transport Minister Mark Bailey said overall south-east Queensland public transport patronage for October to December increased by about 2 per cent - or 860,000 trips - compared with the same period in 2016.

"Queensland Rail is focused on delivering reliable, on-time services for its customers, and throughout the first two quarters of this financial year, has exceeded its target of 95 per cent of services running on time," he said.

Last year's data was only released this week, with two quarters of data published, prompting criticism from the LNP Transport spokesman Steve Minnikin.

"They can't run trains on time and now they can't even deliver train reports on time," he said.

But Mr Bailey's spokesman said the data was released later than usual due to the flow-on impacts from the election, caretaker period and the Commonwealth Games.
