Brisbane City Council is building a greater
transport network to get you from the city to the suburbs, quicker and safer. The first stage of Brisbane Metro will see
two new, turn-up-and-go Metro lines, connecting the city to the suburbs along dedicated busways. Metro 1 will link Eight Mile Plains to Roma
Street. Metro 2 will link the Royal Brisbane and Women’s
Hospital, to the University of Queensland. You’ll be able to change between Metro,
bus or train at 11 different locations, including the planned Cross River Rail. Future stages could see Brisbane Metro extended
to other parts of the city, like Carindale and Chermside. Rather than hundreds of buses travelling into
the city, they’ll link with new high-capacity and high-frequency, Metro services. That means more available buses for the suburbs
and less congestion in the city. Travel will be made easier, with 17 stations
upgraded with real-time travel information to help you plan your journey Up to 60 new Metro vehicles will each have
a capacity for up to 150 passengers and feature journey information displays, Wi-Fi connectivity
and mobile charging. All-door boarding and a low floor design will
mean faster journeys and less time waiting. Brisbane Metro will deliver new and upgraded
infrastructure to provide better connections, including a new state-of-the-art underground
station at the Cultural Centre, a new tunnel underneath Adelaide Street from
North Quay to King George Square station, Victoria Bridge converted into a ‘green
bridge’ providing dedicated pedestrian pathways, a separated two-way cycleway and three lanes
for Metro and bus services, and a new Metro depot at Rochedale to stable and maintain
the Metro vehicle fleet. With Brisbane Metro you’ll get home up to
50% quicker with services running every three minutes in peak and 24 hours on the weekend It’s all part of Council’s plan to get
you home quicker and safer with more travel options, less congestion and a greater public
transport network. Get to know Brisbane Metro. Visit the Brisbane City Council website and
