URGENT UPDATE - BRISBANE LORD MAYOR MEDIA STATEMENT

21 March, 2013

Proposed bus changes off the table
“The State Government this afternoon has handed its review of bus services within Brisbane City over to Council.
Firstly, I want to assure residents that the group of proposed changes put forward by the State Government are off the table.
This is good news for Brisbane’s travelling public and I welcome the announcement.
It is my view that the proposed changes represented a revolution rather than an evolution in public transport services.
My view was that Brisbane’s bus services were not broken with annual patronage increasing from 48 million passengers to 80 million since 2004 - so a major overhaul was not required.
This is not the first time Council has reviewed bus services - up to 2004 we did it on a regular basis as required.
I only want to see sensible change and if there are to be any changes we will consult closely with the community.
In conclusion I stress that the group of proposals put forward by the State Government are off the table - Council is now in charge of this review and this is good news for the travelling public.”
