Soon after the removal of the last Brisbane tram, the state government commissioned Queensland’s first major study of public transport for the region. Key recommendations from that study included an upgraded heavy rail system with a comprehensive system of park-and-ride sites and a heavy emphasis on reorganizing the region’s bus services to act as feeder services to a number of upgraded rail stations.

This might explain why there are interchanges at Enoggera and why there are so many vestigial low frequency feeders to rail stations...
