Brisbane enhanced Bus Stops

Parkinson East Bus Stop

As part of Brisbane City Council’s commitment to accessibility, 27 bus stops across the region have been upgraded. The upgrades include improving shelter, seating and pavements surrounding the bus stop. Digital signage and advertising were also included, improving the provision of information and creating the opportunity of raising revenue through advertising.

Upgraded bus stops include those close to transport interchanges, hotels, tourist attractions, as well as those close to popular recreation destinations such as swimming pools and leisure centres. The bus stop improvements provide ongoing value to future visitors and the community as a legacy following the Games.

Some locations include:

  • Brunswick Street, New Farm
  • Queen Street, Brisbane City
  • Ann Street, Brisbane City
  • Caxton Street, Paddington
  • Wynnum Esplanade, Wynnum and Manly.

The Public Domain Improvement Program (PDIP) funds minor capital works to deliver a range of long lasting benefits to the community as well as ensuring the best possible experience for visitors during the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games (GC2018).
