Council Extends Bus Hours for Christmas Shoppers

Brisbane City Council will be implementing an extended bus timetable over the Christmas period, making it easier for people to take advantage of extended retail trading hours and free evening Christmas activities.

Deputy Mayor, Public and Active Transport Chairman Adrian Schrinner said Council would again fund extended public transport options for the week leading up to Christmas.

“Following last year’s successful trial of an extended bus timetable over the Christmas period, we will be offering additional late-night bus services again this year,” Cr Schrinner said.

Indooroopilly, Garden City, Carindale, Chermside and the CBD will all be serviced with additional bus trips from 21 to 23 December.

These extra services will cater to shoppers wishing to take advantage of midnight trading in the CBD and other major suburban shopping centres, as well as those who are out enjoying the array of Christmas festivities in the city, such as the City Hall Lights Spectacular.

The extended timetable information will be available on Council’s website and from Translink from early December.
