QuoteAnger over bus and train timetable mismatch * Transport & Traffic10 Feb 11 @ 12:19pm A Bray Park mum whose bus arrives one-minute late for a connecting train has called for an overhaul of the timetables.Kirsty Reynolds discovered the one-minute difference when she returned to work from maternity leave this year."I couldn't believe it. The first bus reaches Bray Park railway station at 6.47am and a (city-bound) train leaves at 6.46am,'' Ms Reynolds said."I cannot see why they cannot put on an earlier bus or run this one a few minutes earlier,'' she said.Ms Reynolds received support from Robert Dow, spokesman for public transport lobby group Rail Back on Track, who said the connection should be fixed when the new Caboolture rail line timetable came in later this year."The connection should be seamless,'' he said.Mr Dow said the optimal time for a bus to arrive before a connecting train was five minutes.A TransLink spokesman said Ms Reynolds was the first 671 passenger to raise the issue but said Translink welcomed feedback. He also said the 671 bus, which arrived at Bray Park station at 6.37am, connected to a city-bound train 11 minutes later.
