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 traveller’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

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 18:00.

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 Change 2016

Following stakeholder consultation in 2015 Property and Facilities an additional service ex-Gatton was introduced at 18:30. This provides a travel option for passengers who need to attend early evening lectures at Gatton. For queries, comments or feedback regarding these services please contact intercampusbus@pf.uq.edu.au

St Lucia to Long Pocket Shuttle Bus Service

A shuttle bus service departs from the Chancellors Place bus stop, adjacent to the taxi rank and proceeds to the Long Pocket site. It operates from 07:35 until 17:45 every week day (excluding Public & University holidays). The service caters for University staff and students who require transport to the Long Pocket site. There is no charge for this service.

The bus is not permitted to stop at any location between the St Lucia campus and the Long Pocket site, but passengers wishing to get off at different locations within the Long Pocket site may request the bus driver to stop where it is safe to do so.

Timetable Change 2016

In response to feedback from West End commuters the first service from St Lucia to Long Pocket departs at 07:35 rather than 07:30 in order to allow more time for early commuters to make the connection through UQ lakes. There is no other change to the St Lucia - Long Pocket timetable.

Bookings

There is no booking system for the Long Pocket Shuttle service – simply board at the bus stop and swipe on using your UQ ID card or UQ Building Access card.
