Additional bus services for Yarrabilba

Four additional daily bus services are now operating at Yarrabilba following discussions between the Queensland Government, Logan: City of Choice Leadership Team and Logan City Council.

The two additional morning and two additional afternoon peak hour services started on 11 April 2016, along with two return off-peak services.

This means there are now three morning and afternoon peak hour services, which have been scheduled to align with passenger rail services linking Loganlea Station with Brisbane City. The new services are in addition to existing school services.

The additional services are subsidised by developer Lendlease as part of the Movement Network Infrastructure Master Plan for Yarrabilba, as approved by Economic Development Queensland.

Logan: City of Choice Leadership Team Chair Jude Munro welcomed the improvements.

"Until now, there has only been single inbound and outbound peak hour services and one off-peak return service to the Loganlea train station and Hyperdome," Ms Munro said.

"Under the Movement Network Infrastructure Master Plan, services should have increased 18 months after the first residents moved into Yarrabilba (when around 200 lots developed), however that milestone passed with no upgrade.

"There are now more than 960 lots developed at Yarrabilba, so we are grateful to the Queensland Government for its ability to influence this outcome.

"Yarrabilba is particularly isolated, so it's critical that residents there have access to efficient and integrated public transport so that they can access employment and education opportunities and remain socially connected," Ms Munro said.
