For a Better Brisbane

Launched: Brisbane CityGlider


Have you noticed fancy new blue and yellow bus stops appearing around Brisbane?

These stops are for the Brisbane City Council’s new CityGlider bus which officially went into service today. It’s basically a BUZ thow-away-your-timetable service with a different name and stickers. It’s good to see public transport coming before mass overcrowding or major urban renewal. A good move by the Brisbane City Council and Queensland Government.

The new CityGlider

The CityGlider is will support redevelopent of Montague Road. Hopefully high use will make  Brisbane City Council consider converting it into a quieter, higher capacity, no local emission and particle emission-free light rail tram.

Now, if only all of Brisbane’s trams in the 1960s had not been ripped up…
