Prepare to get on board! Translink-operated bus services will be available to  Greater Flagstone locals starting late November 2019.

Minister for State Development, Manufacturing, Infrastructure and Planning Cameron Dick announced that the $19.6-million project is set to activate TransLink bus services running between the Greater Flagstone PDA and Grand Plaza Shopping Centre in Browns Plains.

“Economic Development Queensland and the Department of Transport and Main Roads have worked together to deliver public transport service to Greater Flagstone,” Mr Dick said.

“Our $19.6 million funding agreement over 10 years will see TransLink progressively introduce more bus services as demand increases.”

“As the community grows, TransLink’s services will grow with it,” Member for Jordan,  Charis Mullen said.

“This will ensure our community remains liveable, and attractive for people looking to move here.

“Residents will be better connected to employment, education, shops, and recreational spaces.

“It’s about improving lifestyle and opportunity, both locally and across the wider Logan region.”

The new bus route will be classified as Zone 3 from start to finish, according to Member for Logan, Linus Power. This means the cost of the trip will be cheaper — $3.31 from Greater Flagstone to Brown Plans and $6.61 if your heading to the CBD — and even cheaper rates for pensioners, students, and during off-peak times.

The proposed route of the initial services will begin in Trailblazer Drive, Flagstone, and will include stops through to Browns Plains, Monday to Friday between 5:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. Each one-way trip will be about 26 km and travel time will be approximately 40 minutes.
