Once again, southern region (Logan) scores the worst OTR, but TransLink completely refuses to review timetables to make them more realistic, i.e. in line with actual running times. Western (Ipswich) isn't far behind!

To Logan's credit, anything which remotely touches the motorways is notoriously inconsistent in peak times due to the lack of bus priority and varying congestion based on luck, accidents etc.  The worst route is the P546 in arvo peak (or just about anything that touches the gateway then), which varies between 40 mins and 1hr 15 from Buranda to Park Ridge. (The timetable is 42) Note this maximum is not the extreme, both time bounds would generally occur every week. (The longest this trip has taken is 2 hr when everything fu%ked down south) The issue with adding fat to a number of Logan routes in peak is that the run times currently timetabled are very much possible, and do happen. Adding fat would make little difference as on a good day either buses dwell a load (bad for commuters) or don't dwell and run early (also not on time). The attitude that seems to have been taken is OTR in peak on motorway routes is irrelevant beyond leaving the busway and is simply a matter of as fast as the bus can drive given the traffic. (And frequency makes wait times at stops not incredibly relevant)

IMO the timetables should be either the shortest, reasonable, running time (as per present), or they be a median, however with clear instructions buses do not dwell if they're early. However, none of these will fix OTR. The number one solution to all of this is Bus Priority!!

(Of course, this argument only applies to peak motorway routes and not say the 550/560/other stuff, if these off-motorway routes need more time then they should get it IMO.)

When the second 545 ex Browns Plains on a Sunday morning is consistently late, I reckon there's a problem with the timetable. 553 has quite a reliability problem too IMO.

I get your point about the M1 routes, but they're not really the ones I have an issue with. I understand why they run late, and that little can be done about it.

I don't use either route so can't comment specifically but yeah, fully agree with you on that one, it should be plain for Translink to see if there are systematic problems with the data they have. Shame the bumbling bureaucracy takes forever to take action.

Fairer Fares leading to jump in patronage

Public transport patronage in South East Queensland is on the rise thanks the Palaszczuk Government’s investment in transport infrastructure and the introduction of Fairer Fares.

Transport Minister Mark Bailey said more than 182 million trips were taken across South East Queensland’s public transport network last financial year.

“Since the introduction of this government’s Fairer Fares in late 2016, which lowered the average adult fare by about 13.5 per cent compared to January 2014 fares, we have seen a steady rise in public transport use, leading to the increases we saw last financial year,” Minister Bailey said.

“Fairer Fares has not only got more people to give public transport a go, it has saved everyday families more than $104 million.

“These patronage figures are even more encouraging when you take into account the free public transport provided for major events, including the Commonwealth Games, other sporting events and concerts, which are not captured in these figures.

“With the Australian Automobile Association report today into the cost of commuting in Brisbane, the positive impact of our Fairer Fares and the Palaszczuk Government’s record investment in roads and transport infrastructure cannot not be understated.

“Our number one infrastructure project Cross River Rail will revolutionise how Queenslanders travel in the South East by reducing commute times, unclogging the bottleneck on our rail network, and attracting even more people to jump on public transport and leave their cars at home.

Overall, there were an extra 5.41 million trips compared with 2016-17, with all modes showing an increase.

Minister Bailey said the government has introduced other measures to encourage public transport use such as a number of concession and discount schemes for asylum seekers, job seekers and veterans’ concessions as well as frequent travel incentives and off-peak discounts.

“Future projects including the recently announced new ticketing system, with more payment options, will also make public transport more convenient and easier to use.”

Wow, look at light rail go! Of course extension to Helensvale probably helped somewhat.
