Too many route make it too complicated to navigate without serious research and then adapability is hard to do as you need detailed knowledge of routes and maps. Plus there i no single map that shows all routes.

This area is well served by PT. Unfortunately no Light Rail, so marks lost on that front.
Negative people... have a problem for every solution.

I actually agree with you here.

The only way it could be any better would be high capacity light rail (or better). The 199 from New Farm is chockers every morning and it comes every 5 minutes. On top of that the CityGlider and other 19X routes cover some of the same territory. I don't see how capacity can be increased above that with buses alone. New Farm needs light rail following the 199 route down Brunswick St and left into Merthyr Rd.

But yeah, apart from that the service in this part of town is ace! :-t

A decent map of the system would help a lot. Translink journey planner is poor at suggesting which buses go along which routes - it will tell you to catch bus number ???, but not 'any of the following buses xxx, yyy or zzz' and since bus timetabling in the inner city is inevitably erratic because of congestion, you are often left waiting for ??? when you could just as well have got any of the others.

Surely that is a problem with journey planner, though. It could happen at any busway, bus interchange or major road or in fact anywhere there is more than one route. It shouldn't be a black mark against Brisbane Central bus services.
