Ferny Grove line commuters will soon get 44 more train services each week as part of Queensland Rail’s plan to add hundreds of extra services a week across Brisbane.
From July 29, 20 services will be added to the Ferny Grove line Friday timetable and six daily services added to the Monday to Thursday schedule.
Capacity will be further boosted by the replacement of 38 services that currently use three-car trains with six-car trains.
The extra services will include two during the morning peak Monday to Friday, departing Ferny Grove at 5.47am and 8.40am.
Three extra peak services will run on Fridays, departing Ferny Grove at 7.10am and Central at 4.03pm and 5.03pm.
Queensland Rail said the 44 extra services would reinstate a consistent timetable Monday to Friday and provide consistent trains every 7-15 minutes in peak times and every 15 minutes between morning and afternoon peak.
This meant customers could simply “turn up and go” throughout the day.
State Labor MP for Ferny Grove Mark Furner said these would be among the 430 services a week Queensland Rail would restore throughout its network.
