TO: The Honourable the Speaker and Members of the Legislative Assembly of Queensland

The petition of citizens of Queensland draws to the attention of the House of Translink Service 529 that services the Brisbane Valley, north of Ipswich,


Currently there are two different routes for Service 529. One service runs from Toogoolawah to Ipswich via Lowood in the early morning, with a return trip in the late afternoon, Monday to Saturday. Another service runs from Ipswich to Lowood then back to Ipswich in the midmorning, with another service on the same route in the mid-afternoon, Monday to Friday.

 

Currently two very different bus routes are given the same bus service number. As well one service operates Monday to Saturday while the other only operates Monday to Friday. This is confusing for bus users and make time tables hard to understand.

 

Your petitioners request that the two routes for Translink Bus Service 529 be given different service numbers.
