The Department of Transport and Main Roads (TMR) is working towards a better public transport system for the Sunshine Coast

TMR is leading a Detailed Business Case for an enhanced public transport connection between Maroochydore and the Sunshine Coast University Hospital at Birtinya (Stage 1), with a possible extension to Caloundra (Stage 2).

The project aims to enable greater travel choices for short, local trips throughout the Sunshine Coast, and help ease congestion and improve efficiency of the broader transport network through reduced car dependence.

The Detailed Business Case for Stage 1 is currently underway and involves an assessment of potential transport modes and investigates all components of the project to understand and demonstrate the economic, social, environmental and financial viability of the project.

What's new?

In November 2023, we released further information about key components of the project. See below and click to find out more.

Ways to get involved

TMR wants to create the best possible transport network for the Sunshine Coast and ensure the needs of everyone in the community are carefully considered.

On 1 November 2023, we commenced a further round of consultation for the project which closed on 10 December 2023. This followed initial consultation undertaken by TMR in mid 2023.
