Lord Mayor's message

It’s been another challenging year for our CBD retailers.

While the recent removal of some COVID restrictions has helped, the number of people in Queen Street Mall is still down on pre‑pandemic levels.

So, I’ve stepped in to help them with a major new initiative: free Council bus travel on the two weekends before Christmas.

Under my plan, all travel on our fleet of more than 1200 buses will be free from 10-12 December and from 17-19 December.

It means whenever residents or visitors hop on a Council bus during these periods, there will be no need to pay. Full stop.

I hope everyone uses this opportunity to do a bit of Christmas shopping in the city or try out one of our fantastic CBD cafes and restaurants.

While in the city, families can also tie in a visit to some of our great Christmas in Brisbane activities, such as the Lord Mayor’s Christmas Carols or a visit to our incredible City Hall lights display.

Have a Merry Christmas.

Adrian Schrinner
Lord Mayor
