Brisbanetimes --> Public transport sees 15th consecutive month of year-on-year growth

Quote
Public transport is in vogue in south-east Queensland, with increasing numbers of people hopping on board.

TransLink data, due to be released on Friday, reveals there was a 6.5 per cent increase in trips in December 2018 compared with the same month the previous year.

That represents almost 1 million extra trips, with 15.26 million trips taken across the network in December 2018.

Transport Minister Mark Bailey said the December patronage data marked the 15th consecutive month of year-on-year growth.

"Since October 2017, monthly patronage figures on buses, trains, trams and ferries across the south-east have vastly improved when comparing with the same period the year prior," he said.

Mr Bailey attributed the figures to the popularity of Gold Coast light rail, the Redcliffe Peninsula train line and the roll-out of the New Generation Rollingstock.

"The data also speaks to the Palaszczuk government's action on fare prices through Fairer Fares, which has saved Queenslanders more than $138 million since it was introduced," he said.

There was also a boost in patronage from July to September 2018, with people taking 49.17 million trips, representing a 7 per cent increase, or about 3.3 million trips, compared with the same period in 2017.

Buses remained king in south-east Queensland, with almost two in three public transport trips taken by bus.

There was an increase in trips taken by bus, train and tram in quarter one 2018-19 compared with the same quarter the previous year, but there was a drop in ferry patronage.

That is despite CityCat passengers being the happiest public transport users.

A survey of public transport users found bus users rated overall satisfaction at 72 out of 100, train commuters gave a score of 71, while ferry passengers said 81.

Scores of 75 and above are considered "best practice", while 60 and above is "satisfactory".

The percentage of buses on time during the quarter was 93.98 per cent, while peak on-time running for trains was 95.52 per cent.

Overall customer complaints to TransLink were 2.06 per 10,000 trips.

Passengers used go cards on 87 per cent of all trips.

The average fare per trip paid by customers was $1.88 and the average Queensland government subsidy per trip was $6.75.

It follows a total of 182.83 million trips taken on south-east Queensland public transport in 2017-18, not including the more than five million trips taken during the Commonwealth Games.

http://statements.qld.gov.au/Statement/2019/2/8/65-surge-in-seq-public-transport-trips-after-15th-consecutive-month-of-growth

Minister for Transport and Main Roads
The Honourable Mark Bailey

6.5% surge in SEQ public transport trips after 15th consecutive month of growth
More and more people continue to take public transport in south east Queensland after the fare cuts by the Palaszczuk Government.

New data published by the Queensland Government today shows a 6.5 per cent increase in south east Queensland public transport trips, up by 929,000 journeys, when comparing December 2017 with December 2018.

Additionally, there were 49.17 million trips taken in SEQ during first quarter of 2018/19, representing a 7 per cent increase when compared with the same period in 2017/18.

Transport and Main Roads Minister Mark Bailey said the December 2018 patronage data marked the 15th consecutive period of year-on-year growth.

“Since October 2017, monthly patronage figures on buses, trains, trams and ferries across the South East have vastly improved when comparing with the same period the year prior,” Mr Bailey said.

“These are positive figures which speak to the popularity of new public transport infrastructure including the Gold Coast Light Rail and Redcliffe Peninsula Line, and the ongoing rollout of NGR trains across the south east.

“The data also shows the Palaszczuk Government’s action backing commuters with fare cuts through Fairer Fares is working, which has saved Queenslanders more than $138 million since it was introduced.

“We know just how important investing in major infrastructure projects is to supporting this growth, and to delivering more frequent, reliable transport, which is why we built Gold Coast Light Rail Stage Two, why we’re delivering the transformational $5.4 billion Cross River Rail project and why we’re funding the Sunshine Coast rail duplication.”

Weekly patronage data is published online every month. For more information on public transport contact translink.com.au or phone the 24/7 contact centre on 13 12 30.

Gold Coast patronage is strong over the last year:

Light rail - 32.56% increase
- 2.15m for Q1 17/18 (pre-Helensvale opening)
- 2.85m Q1 18/19

Bus - 1.7% drop
- 3.52m for Q1 17/18
- 3.46m for Q1 18/19

Total tram and bus - 11.29% increase
- 5.67m for Q1 17/18
- 6.31m for Q1 18/19

Trams are now carrying 45% of all local patronage.  In only a few years I expect it will be carrying more than 50%.  By the time Burleigh happens it could be as high as 60%+

It does concern me that bus patronage is not growing very strongly.  I suspect the high frequency routes will be doing well and a good chunk of the decline can be attributed to the 709 being withdrawn, but the feeders are a lingering problem.  Lack of investment, plain and simple.  TransLink have to spend money where it will do the most good, and they are not getting the resources they need to fix anything outside the busiest parts of town.
