TransLink is boosting local bus services for Bundamba school students ahead of Term 4.
The move means more seats on an additional morning and afternoon service operated by Westside Bus Company.
Member for Bundamba Lance McCallum said the morning 5212 route would support students attending St Mary's Primary School, St Edmund's College, Ipswich State High School, West Moreton Anglican College, Ipswich West State School, Ipswich Central State School and Silkstone State School.
He said the afternoon 6212 route would serve students from Immaculate Heart School, West Moreton Anglican College, Ipswich State High School, Ipswich Grammar School, St Mary's Primary School, St Edmund's College, Ipswich Girls' Grammar School and Redbank Plains State School.
“The new routes will service the same schools, run along the current route, and use existing bus stops,” Mr McCallum said.
"From Term 4, TransLink will split the route with one bus completing one portion of the route, and a second bus completing the remainder of the existing route.
“Students in Bundamba deserve to have a consistent, efficient bus service.
“I have spoken to many parents who share my concerns with the current service timetable, and I believe these changes will provide a solution.”
