Peak and Off-Peak

Peak and off-peak
Peak - from 2am to 9am and 3.30pm to 7pm weekdays, except public holidays.

Off-peak - from 9am to 3.30pm and after 7pm weekdays until 2am the following day and all day weekends and gazetted public holidays. Last trip must be commenced before off-peak ends.

Why does the morning peak start at 2am? Surely they would want to encourage commuters to spread the peak by having an off-peak period to start with, say services before 7/7.30am?
There is no silver bullet… but there is silver buckshot.
Never argue with an idiot. They'll drag you down to their level and beat you with experience.

The early start for peak is to avoid confusion on go card with off peak fares.

If only peak frequencies matched the peak bandwiths!!
Half hour frequencies post 6.00pm on Caboolture line. Pax still standing to Bald Hills on this evening's 6.36 ex central. Not good enough in 2010.  :pr
