Just putting here (not sure if there is a more appropriate thread) - just noticed this seems to have been added to the TL website recently.

^ There are some wobbles - it seems to only be able to cope with 19 pages (if you enable it to search for everything it cuts out somewhere in the rail timetables).  Also some dead routes still showing up like the 709.  (This happens with service alerts too, where you will see even longer dead routes popping up like the N732 and N750).

It also appears to contemplate all the Qconnect regional timetables eventually coming across, which I expect is only a matter of time.

^^They are on the Beta APP as well which is one of the enhancements to be released.


Real time info now activated for Stradbroke Island


I'm interested to see how this will work considering most services between Dunwich and Point Lookout (and return) are run by 1-3 buses, depending on the day and time of day. I believe what happens is the first one leaves at the Point Lookout departure time, the next a few minutes after and any more a few minutes later if required. I was over there a few weeks back and I remember there being 3 buses at a time on the 880.

App trial puts transport options in the palm of your hand

A new smartphone app will put multiple transport options in the hands of University of Queensland students and staff as part of a 12-month Mobility as a Service (MaaS) trial.

The ODIN PASS app trial will test the ability to plan, book and pay for multi-modal trips on TransLink public transport services, taxis, rideshare, car-share and e-scooters, as well as e-bikes.

Users subscribe to monthly transport plans and bundles to pay for services through the app, which will offer discounts and reward points on selected modes of transport.

Transport service providers including Neuron, 13CABS and GoGet, will be part of the trial.

Transport and Main Roads Minister Mark Bailey said the trial would be co-led by Department of Transport and Main Roads and UQ as part of an iMOVE Cooperative Research Centres program, and would be supported by Australian-based app developer SkedGo.

"The app gives people the option to personally tailor their trips by combining multiple transport options, including focusing on that last mile connection," Mr Bailey said.

"For example, some people may get off a bus and need to walk some distance to get to their desired destination, so this app will assist trial participants to plan out a seamless transition using different transport modes to help them get to their destination faster.

"This is one of the largest real-world MaaS trials undertaken in Australia in terms of the number of service providers and has the potential to shape the future of the industry.

"Being able to plan and test different mobility solutions through a single app is a real game-changer, and we've also integrated traffic data into the app to provide information on things like road disruptions and suggested alternative routes."

Mr  Bailey said modelling of the transport plans and bundles was based on research with students and staff.

The plans and bundles will include unlimited public transport, e-scooters and e-bikes, as well as discounts on taxis, car-sharing and ride-sharing.

The trial would be available to all UQ students and staff, with applications accepted via the odinpass.com.au website.

The app includes options to choose the most environmentally friendly route to a destination which also earns extra reward points to trade in at the UQ campus.

UQ Chief Operating Officer Andrew Flannery said this was another example of UQ partnering with government, business and community.

"The MaaS trial is innovative and will investigate real options that make passenger and active transport more appealing," Mr Flannery said.

"By providing easy access and a seamless transition between multiple transport options, we're hoping this trial will to lead to more public transport use, taking more cars off the road.

"We're encouraging our staff and students to jump onboard and sign up for this trial and help design and deliver even better transport options for Brisbane."

The Odinpass student pricing is quite good. I can see a huge uptake for this.
