Free Bus Loop Survey

Take our 'Free Bus Loop Survey'

Before I was elected, my team and I had more than one thousand conversations with Paddington Ward residents about what matters most. It’s clear that our community needs public transport access and connectivity. Right now, services are designed to provide trips in and out of the CBD, but this hub-and-spoke model is not suitable for cross-suburb travel. What should be a brief journey turns into an hour-long ordeal, resulting in most people opting to drive, if they can. 

As the new Councillor for the Paddington War, I want to see a Free Bus Loop that connects people to the places they want to go but we need your help. 

Our Green Councillors on the Southside, Jonno Sriranganathan (former Councillor) and Trina Massey, Greens Councillor for the Gabba Ward, secured a trial for a free South Brisbane 86 bus loop route. This is a circular route connecting South Brisbane to West End and to Southbank. This is a welcome opportunity for the residents of the southside to enjoy free and frequent public transport in their area, reducing congestion and parking issues. Paddington Ward residents need and deserve a similar service.   You can see the existing 3 Free bus loops here.

We are proposing a free bus loop to connect the delightful high streets, urban villages and communities of Paddington Ward to its suburbia and other transport infrastructure. 

This survey is to help us get it right. It also helps us build pressure on the Council administration to fund this service.

My team has devised several routes based on the feedback we have received during our door-to-door interactions. You’re encouraged to think creatively about what loop best suits your travel needs. Your insights will greatly contribute to creating a public transport system that genuinely meets the diverse needs of our community, and it should only take a couple of minutes!
