Public transport

The Department of Transport and Main Roads

The Department of Transport and Main Roads helps local government-owned transport operators, private bus and ferry operators, taxi and limousine companies and regional air operators to develop efficient, sustainable and flexible transport services. We also remove the barriers to access and mobility, and encourage smarter travel choices.

2013 park ‘n’ ride survey

This project is part of our work to understand how you use our park ‘n’ ride facilities, the current levels of demand and the future park ‘n’ ride infrastructure needed across south-east Queensland. It builds on previous surveys undertaken in 2009, 2010 and 2011.

Between 8 and 24 October 2013, our contractor Traffic Data & Control will visit all bus, train and ferry park ‘n’ ride facilities in south-east Queensland to count vehicles and collect number plate information. The contractor will display signage when they are present at park ’n’ ride facilities.

Why is it needed and what are the benefits?

The data collected through the survey will assist in planning and improving public transport routes, services, infrastructure and customer information.

It will help ensure we understand the benefits of new infrastructure and its impacts on travel behaviour, as well as informing future works.

How will this affect me?

There will be no community impact, and no personal data such as name or street address will be viewed or recorded. Registration numbers will be recorded and matched with the vehicle’s home postcode. The data contractor will destroy the collected data when the project is completed.

Passenger Transport Strategy

The Department of Transport and Main Roads has developed a strategy that sets the direction and shapes the future for moving people and connecting communities in Queensland.

Moving People Connecting Communities: A Passenger Transport Strategy for Queensland 2007–2017 addresses all ways people move, including use of private vehicles and public transport such as buses, trains and taxis.
