Project info

The department is investigating existing public transport infrastructure, services and connections on the island and to the neighbouring mainland including ferry (water taxi and barges), bus, rail, taxi and personalised transport and will examine opportunities to improve access for all passengers. 

Transport and Main Roads is investigating more sustainable travel options to enable people to commute to and from the island efficiently and create additional opportunities for the local economy.

Transport and Main Roads is working closely with other state government departments, Redland City Council, the Quandamooka Yoolooburrabee Aboriginal Corporation (QYAC), Straddie Chamber of Commerce, business and industry representatives and the broader community to address local needs, reflect the priorities of the island and create additional opportunities for the local economy.

To inform the study, we have undertaken a survey of residents, business owners and visitors to identify community priorities and concerns about public transport on the island and held community information sessions to enable residents to provide input into options to be considered for improving the public transport system.

The draft strategy is expected to be released for consultation in late 2018.
