Minjerribah (North Stradbroke Island) Public Transport Strategy
As part of Minjerribah Futures (formerly known as the North Stradbroke Island Economic Transition Strategy), the Department of Transport and Main Roads is developing the Minjerribah (North Stradbroke Island) Public Transport Strategy. The strategy aims to support the objectives of Minjerribah Futures by ensuring the public transport system enhances access for tourists and visitors and supports the liveability of the island for residents.
We have investigated the existing public transport infrastructure, services and connections on the island and to the neighbouring mainland including ferry, bus, rail, taxi and personalised transport.
We are investigating more sustainable travel options to enable people to commute to and from the island efficiently and create additional opportunities for the local economy.
We are working with other state government departments, Redland City Council, the Quandamooka Yoolooburrabee Aboriginal Corporation, business organisations 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 strategy, we have undertaken a survey of residents 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 explored by the strategy.
View our Community information sessions: engagement summary page for further information.
The draft strategy is expected to be released for consultation later in 2020.
