For many years, with your help, we have been seeking funding support from the State Government for an extension of the FREE Spring Hill Loop.
Most bus routes in Brisbane are funded by the State Government.
Brisbane City Council and St. Andrew’s Hospital have fully funded the Free Loop until now and we are very glad the State Government has finally jumped on board to supplement the service.
It’s important that as Brisbane’s population grows, the city’s public transport network continues to expand and offer new travel options.
That is why I am also fighting to secure funds for the new GOLD Glider that could provide a connection to and from the State Government’s Northshore Hamilton Priority Development Area, through the City, and over to Woolloongabba.
I’d like to see that service as close to Spring Hill as possible in order to provide you with even more public transport opportunities.
The Schrinner Council’s delivery of the upgraded Kingsford Smith Drive project allows for reliable travel times along that corridor and into the CBD, so the timing is perfect to start exploring even more high-frequency public transport.
This financial year we’re doing the business case to support our proposal and then we’ll ask the State Government to jump on board to help us deliver the GOLD Glider too.
At Brisbane City Council we are always planning to reduce traffic congestion and building on our record of operating one of Australia’s largest and most modern bus fleets.
