    FREE SPRING HILL LOOP BUS

    by balhannah Updated Feb 4, 2013

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This FREE BUS takes you a little further out of the city centre of Brisbane.

    You will pass by Brisbane Private Hospital, King Edward Park, Post Office Square, Roma Street Parkland, St Andrew's War Memorial Hospital, and Wickham Park. Stop and hop off and on when ever you wish!

    The Spring Hill loop bus operates approximately every 10 minutes between 8.10am and 6.05pm and stops at the YELLOW bus stops.

    Travelling On The Weekends?

    No Buses on Sunday

    Travelling on a weekday is fine. But when it comes to weekend, oh boy! There are barely bus services that will bring you to the city. There were even times where the bus does not turn up!

    So stay near the City Cat terminals or alternatively, in the city area so that public transportation will not cause you any delay.

    Brisbane City Council Buses

    by amandajayne81 Written Jul 4, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I went to uni in Brisbane and often used the bus to get around. They do run quite frequently to the city from virtually all suburbs. The are generally on time and deliver satisfactory service. More and more bus lanes and tunnels seem to be popping up and this speeds up transit.

    I think they are a bit too expensive ($3.80 for an adult to travel about 20km). If governments are really serious about saving the environment this sort of thing should be made cheaper.

    I probably prefer the City Cat if I am only going short distances in and around the city but the bus is handy for getting into the city from the suburbs.

    Free Red City Loop Bus

    by ruthless1 Written Dec 6, 2004

    Brisbane City is easy to get around on the Free City Loop bus. There are two buses - clockwise and anticlockwise - that loop the city from QUT to Riverside to Central Railway Station to The Mall/Casino.

    They circle from 7am to 5.50pm and pass a stop approx every 10 mins (traffic dependant). There are red coloured bus stop signs with maps of the city centre where you hail the buses.

    Bus tickets

    by westrella Written Feb 2, 2004
    Brisbane bus tickets

    You can either buy tickets on the bus or prebuy them at newsagents.

    Pre bought ones come in:
    1. Zones (10 trips)
    2. Day Rover (single whole day use)

    You can currently use these tickets on the ferry and Citycat as well.

    You can enquire at the info booth at Queen Street Mall or on phone about zone boundaries, but it may be easier if you get a feel for what you are doing in Brisbane and then buy a zone ticket.

    Be aware you can't insert a 1 zone ticket twice to make a 2 zone journey.

    On the bus you can buy:
    1. Off Peak saver. This is much cheaper than a Day Rover, but is limited. You can't travel on this card between 3pm - 7pm. However, you can use it anytime on the weekend (but not on the boats).
    2. Transfer ticket. Ask for this if you need to take 2 different buses to get somewhere.
    3. Normal zone ticket. Just tell the driver where you want to go, and they will tell you how much it costs.

    Keep your ticket handy in case an inspector gets on board.

    See www.transinfo.qld.gov.au which is the website for all Brisbane's public transport information. Here you will also find journey planners and the bus routes and times.

    Getting on a council bus

    by westrella Written Jan 21, 2004

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I know this is a daggy tip, and its not a rule, but is customary. When getting on a bus in Brisbane, there's two imaginary lanes. Line up on the left to pay the driver, and on the right to use the ticket machine. Try and stand to the side so you don't block all the ticket holders getting on. Most of them around 5pm are office workers who have had a hard day typing letters and answering phones.. poor workers!
