* Now Running In Flagstone *
Flagstone to get its own 535 bus service next month
Residents of southest Queensland's fastest residential growth area will soon get their first public bus service - which will take them into Brisbane and to major
shopping centres and schools.
A DATE has finally been set for the first bus service for the emerging residential estate of Flagstone.
The 535 bus service, which will be classified as zone 3, will run from Flagstone to the Browns Plains Grand Plaza Shopping Centre starting on November 18.
The service will start in Trailblazer Dve and include stops at schools, the Greenbank Shopping Centre at Pub Lane, and Greenbank RSL.
A go card trip from Flagstone to Browns Plains will cost $3.31 and a connection service to the Brisbane CBD will be $6.61.
The bus service will be part of a 10-year plan to rollout public transport to the emerging area, branded as the fastest growing region in the state.
State Planning Minister Cameron Dick said TransLink would progressively introduce more bus services as local demand called for it over the next 10 years under the $19.6 million funding agreement with developers.
The one-way trip is about 26km, with an estimated trip time of 40 minutes.
Services will initially be Monday to Friday, between 5.30am to 7.30pm.
There will be high frequency connections to Brisbane from the Greenbank RSL and Grand Plaza has all-day connections to Brisbane and other areas of Logan.
