Project info

Public transport is critical for making North Stradbroke Island accessible for visitors and supports the liveability of island residents. This study aims to assess options to improve North Stradbroke Island public transport.

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

The study will look at what is and isn't working at the moment, as well as identify new ideas that could help the island become more accessible for both residents and tourists.

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

The study is expected to be finalised in 2018.

Transport and Main Roads will work 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.
