Quote from: #Metro on November 04, 2018, 20:44:44 PMThey need a bus reform panel.
QuoteRealistically, bus reform can't be done properly with the current state of the rail network. While some improvements can be made where the bus network duplicates itself, I wouldn't be trying to enforce bus-rail interchange until the following conditions are met:(i) 98% OTR (not just peak, and including NGRs, but excluding genuine force majeure events: boom gate strikes, bridge strikes, lightning strikes etc).(ii) consistent Monday-Friday timetable(iii) 15-minute service to Shorncliffe, Ferny Grove, Darra, Altandi, Murrarie, Petrie 7am-7pm every day. Honestly I'd prefer 6am-9pm, but 7-7 is a start.Yes, I'm aware of the issues regarding Murrarie regarding terminating there; they need to be fixed. 590 is too important a route not to connect to IMO.I'm also not sure if 15 minutes needs to go as far as Petrie, but where else between there and Northgate can you realistically terminate?

QuoteIndeed, but that is some years off. Certain reforms could be done now, but all we hear from the planning section of TransLink (assuming they even have one anymore) is crickets.
Quote from: ozbob on April 08, 2019, 01:41:59 AMSent to all outlets:8th April 2019Public Transport Fares Advisory PanelGood Morning,In July 2018 the Queensland Government Cabinet noted the intention of the Minister for Transport and Main Roads to appoint a Public Transport Fares advisory panel > https://cabinet.qld.gov.au/documents/2018/Jul/ApptFaresPanel/Appointments%20to%20Public%20Transport%20Fares%20Advisory%20Panel.docxDoes anyone know if this panel has actually formed? We believe it is important that as the new payment system (Next Generation Ticketing https://translink.com.au/about-translink/projects-and-initiatives/next-generation-ticketing ) is developed for Queensland public transport that there be some broader community consultation and input, particularly with respect to the types of ticketing products such as periodical options, as well as pay as you go options (as for the present go card system in SEQ).Thank you.RobertRobert DowAdministrationadmin@backontrack.orgRAIL Back On Track https://backontrack.org
