QuoteNightLink is the name given to the all-night public transport services that leave Fortitude Valley and Brisbane City on Friday and Saturday nights. These services help patrons get home safely after a night out.
Quote from: verbatim9 on December 07, 2015, 10:13:50 AMSuggestion for improvement for Night link services; There should be an initiative for bidirectional services from Indooroopilly Eight Mile Plains Aspley or Chermside and Carindale. Is Night link already bidirectional for NYE? If not a good test eve for bidirectional night services.
Quote from: verbatim9 on December 08, 2015, 14:00:10 PMSee if you can put forward to the new Transport minister as an email? At least we can have night link services that run on Sunday to Monday Mornings where long weekends exist.
Quote from: James on December 08, 2015, 20:35:17 PMIf we wanted to establish a 7-day/week 24 hour network, may I suggest starting with services to Chermside, UQ, Carindale and 8MP from the City. Run them hourly and in banks, so they all arrive in the CBD within 5-10 minutes of each other and all leave at similar times.
Quote from: aldonius on December 08, 2015, 21:56:01 PMAdd to that the Gliders, the 199 and possibly the 196. Incidentally, NightLink city routings?
Quote from: aldonius on December 11, 2015, 15:28:00 PMMapped it out!(NB: this is a draft. I'm thinking the N111 and N222 should do the Valley loop, and have a few graphic-design things to fix.)
Quote from: LD Transit on December 12, 2015, 01:11:49 AMI think hourly frequency isn't great, even at night. Half hourly would be the bare minimum. Who wants to wait one hour in the dead of night at a bus stop all alone? A suggestion: a 444* short service, terminating at Indooroopilly to this.
Quote from: Charlie-Green-RugI worked as a bouncer in the CBD from 2006 to 2008, back when they were doing that lock-out trial at, what was it, 1am?It was plain to everyone at that time that the biggest problem was that drunk people were stuck in the CBD, the taxis couldn't cope, and they had nowhere to go and nothing to do but get drunker and cause trouble. It was total idiocy to not have 24 hour public transport. It's only taken another DECADE since then...
Quote from: James on June 15, 2016, 09:04:35 AMQuote from: nathandavid88 on June 14, 2016, 14:24:01 PMFares are not the thing that needs to be fixed with regards to Nightlink services – the fact that people opt to spend substantially more money on taxis or uber to get home shows this. The thing needed to fix Nightlink is more routes so as to service more people, higher frequency running (half hourly) to make it more convenient a service, and for the trains to play a bigger role than providing a single service at 3:30am. A lot of this is actually perception - some people either don't know the service exists, are reluctant to walk home from the bus stop alone, or simply catch cabs out of habit or convenience. People going home also tend to go home in groups, making economies of scale more attractive. I tend to be the exception, I prefer to return to my own bed.With the 3am last drinks coming in though, NightLink could potentially have its frequency bumped in exchange for reduced span of hours. With clubs closing at 3am come July 1, there'll be absolutely no need for a NightLink bus at 5am. Agree on trains needing to provide a much better service. I'd prefer hourly bustitution to what runs currently.

Quote from: verbatim9 on June 15, 2016, 09:47:06 AMClubs can still open until 5 am its just they cannot serve alcoholic drinks after 3 am and also they can serve alcohol until 5 am up to 12 times a year for special events. So I dont think Nightlink frequency will be affected.
QuoteYou honestly think clubs will stay open after 3am not serving alcohol? It'd be the (very rare) exception, not the rule.
QuoteThis quote has been doing the rounds forever, because it is true. The lock-out pushes people out on to the street, even though from a "rational" perspective, people should simply stay in clubs until they're ready to go home. To keep it short and simple, people act irrationally on alcohol (and all drugs which impair the mind) and not all night clubs are equal.
