Queensland bus review launched

UNDERPERFORMING bus routes that carry as few as one or two passengers will be targeted in a six-month review of all southeast Queensland services to be announced this morning.

Transport Minister Scott Emerson said the review was necessary after the latest bus patronage figures had declined on 13 of southeast Queensland's 16 bus companies.

The review will also involve finding a solution to empty buses congesting the CBD's Victoria Bridge.

In November last year, brisbanetimes.com.au reported more than 200 buses - many empty - mounted up across the Victoria Bridge in peak hours because of route problems.

The bus review will include public submissions and detailed discussions with bus companies working in Brisbane and the Gold and Sunshine coasts.
