Intercampus Bus UQ Intercampus Bus

The University of Queensland provides staff and students two free bus services - the Intercampus bus service and the St Lucia-Long Pocket shuttle. These services are operated by the Property and Facilities Division. A new bus contract, which commenced operation in January 2016, provides brand new buses with enhanced features. Students and staff enjoy improved comfort and safety with free Wi-Fi available on board.

Buses are fitted with seat belts and all passengers are required to fasten their seat belt when travelling. Queensland Transport legislation states that if you are a passenger travelling on a bus fitted with seat belts, you are required to wear your seat belt.

These services are provided for UQ students and staff who are working on campus. It is not a public bus service. UQ students and staff must swipe on using their UQ ID or UQ Building Access Card. Please note: Bus card scanners only capture the card number but no personal information. This ensures that the traveler’s privacy is protected.

Bona fide visitors attending on UQ business may arrange to obtain a permit to travel on the buses. Passengers without a UQ ID must obtain an individual permission to travel before commencing their journey.


Intercampus Bus Service – St Lucia, Ipswich and Gatton

This service operates daily in each direction. The first bus in each direction is scheduled to deliver students in time for lectures starting at 08.00 and the last service departing Gatton is scheduled so that students can attend lectures finishing at 17.00. There are intermediate stops along the route and passengers on the bus must ring the bell to notify the driver if they wish to stop.

Please be aware that travel time for the Intercampus Bus can vary due to traffic conditions. Passengers using the intermediate stops (between campuses) are requested to ensure that they arrive a minimum of 5 minutes prior to the allotted time.

Timetable

In late 2015 Property and Facilities conducted a survey of passengers regarding a proposal to change the timetable. The responses provided a range of opinions with some in favour and some opposed to the proposed change. Property and Facilities has taken all of the responses into account and in conjunction with our service provider has considered a number of additional options and the associated implications in relation to costs.
The proposed changes to the timetable will commence on 22 February 2016 (Orientation week) and will be announced on the website in the week prior.
