The Free Red Loop Bus

The Loop bus service is a transport service which operates on two routes, clockwise and anti-clockwise, around the Central Business District. Most obvious by the distinctive Red buses which mainly operate the route, you can hop on and off at a number of different locations and get from one end of the city to the other with relative ease. Each bus stop on the service has distinctive red signposts as well. The whole circuit takes about 15-20 minutes.

Details of the loop stops and locations can be found on the Translink web site. Suffice to say, all the main sites through the city, like the Queen Street Mall, City Botanic Gardens, and Eagle Street all get passed by. Best of all the loop is Free! It runs Monday to Friday from 7:00am to 6:00pm, approximately every 10 minutes.


I've found this a great way to get around the city. If I need to get somewhere and I'm feeling too lazy to walk, I can get on the bus and around the same time I can be at the other end of the city. The buses are air-conditioned, new and very comfortable. A great service, but now, if they could only extend it to the weekends as well...

Cheers, I Love Brisbane, Wes.
