To help residents get home quickly and safely, the Personalised Public Transport (PPT) trial at Bellbowrie and Moggill will be extended for another six months starting July 2021.
Operating in areas where TransLink services are limited, a PPT is a low-cost hail and ride service that helps connect residents to their local transport hubs. PPT services can carry up to 10 people per trip, can pick up and drop off passengers where safe to do so on a fixed route, and can operate on a loop.
The new loop route for this hail and ride service will start at the Bellbowrie Shopping Plaza to Weekes Road (at Bloomsbury Crescent), to Livesay Road (at Beaufort Crescent), to Moggill Village Shopping Centre, to Moggill Road bus stop near Montanus Drive (to connect to the 444 bus service) and back to Bellbowrie Shopping Plaza.
Aside from Moggill to Bellbowrie, Council will also provide PPT routes in the following areas in Brisbane:
- Bald Hills
- Carindale Hills
- Hemmant Hills
- Karana Downs
- Upper Brookfield
- Wynnum Manly
Council started implementing the six-month trial of a new PPT on 1 July 2021, after securing funds from the 2021 /22 Schrinner Council budget to extend the services.
According to Councillor Greg Adermann, the route has been realigned to include the new Moggill Village Shopping Centre and the number of services reduced to meet demand for when it is most frequently used.
This service will run Monday to Friday, except public holidays. Maximum journey time is approximately 18 minutes. Each round trip will take 18 minutes and cost $1. To access Moggill to Bellbowrie PPT route and timetable, visit Brisbane City Council’s website.
