The peak body representing the Queensland bus industry says the state of the art design of the new Redland Bay Marina bus station should be the template for future transport hubs throughout the state. 

Final approval has been given for the construction of the bus station which will now have an increased capacity for three buses at a time plus additional bus waiting bays. 

But Queensland Bus Industry Council executive Director David Tape says the key feature of the new terminal is that it improves the waiting environment for patrons travelling between ferry and bus services. 

“The Redland Bay Marina station is what we want to see transport hubs look like moving forward as they fully service the needs of the customer without compromising safety for both patrons and drivers.” 

Mr Tape says the design, which also incorporates driver facilities, will also enable waiting passenger’s better visual access so they can keep an eye on arriving and departing services. 

“QBIC fully supports this type of forward thinking and planning and design as these new hubs represent the way forward in catering for increased services in expanding communities.
