Honey, I shrunk the bus! Translink unveils cute new pint-sized bus in Qld

TRANSLINK has introduced a cute new pint-sized bus to its network – the first of its kind in Queensland.

The little 18-seater will connect residents in Holmview to the Beenleigh train station and local shops, including the Holmview Central Shopping Centre and Beenleigh Marketplace.

The 567 service, which starts and ends at Beenleigh station, will launch on Monday, running every hour between 6.30am and 6.30pm on weekdays, and from 7.30am to 6.30pm on Saturdays.


The service runs entirely within zone 3, costing an adult travelling one way on a go card during peak hour $3.20.

The miniature bus is the first of its kind to be used on the TransLink network, with its smaller size making it easier to navigate residential streets.

There is room for 18 passengers and one wheelchair on board the bus, which is also fitted with full ticketing and go card facilities. For more information on the new service, click here.
