Renew the 412
Future-proofing the network
With Scape Toowong not at full occupancy yet, another student accommodation building under construction (see image on left) and more apartment developments approved for Toowong and Saint Lucia in particular, the 412, 411 and 402 bus routes are only expected to get even busier. With no long-term solution in the pipeline, careful consideration and planning needs to be undertaken now to future-proof the network.
Old problem, new solutions
Congestion experienced on the 412, 411 and 402 bus routes are not a new issue. The 412 has been publicly recognised as a major public transport issue in Brisbane since at least 2012, with the route featuring in a Courier Mail article by Robyn Ironside (see image on left). The full article can be read here.
