A plan for better public transport

The Department of Transport and Main Roads is planning an integrated transport network that connects Sunshine Coast communities.

The Direct Sunshine Coast Rail Line and Sunshine Coast Public Transport projects are being planned together now to increase public transport opportunities for the growing Sunshine Coast community.

Together, the Direct Sunshine Coast Rail Line and the Sunshine Coast Public Transport projects will make travelling by public transport to, from and within the region more convenient, affordable and reliable. They will work together to cater for different types of trips, providing a comprehensive travel solution that meets the varied needs of the community.

TMR is also delivering the Beerburrum to Nambour Rail Upgrade (B2N) project, which covers about 40km of the North Coast Line and will provide additional track capacity and reliability, creating travel time savings and increased passenger and freight services to the growing Sunshine Coast region.

These 3 projects will provide north-south connections, connected by frequent east–west bus connections.

Strategic vision

Project updates

The Southern Sunshine Coast Public Transport Strategy outlines how these 3 major projects (north–south corridors) will service the region, along with frequent east–west bus connections.

  • Bus service improvements

    New bus services were recently introduced and we’re planning to continue to improve connections between stations, key destinations and surrounding areas. This will improve travel options for areas not directly connected by the western, central or coastal corridors.
