Lord Mayor's message

The recent months have been incredibly tough and Brisbane’s recovery from our biggest-ever rain event is going to take time.

While this has been my focus, it’s great to see progress on projects like Brisbane Metro, which will revolutionise public transport for decades to come.

Brisbane Metro is considered such an important initiative that all levels of government are now on board supporting it.

The project passed another major milestone recently with the first Brisbane Metro pilot vehicle – the first of its kind in Australia – starting local testing. This fully-electric vehicle will have capacity for up to 170 passengers who will travel in style with next-stop displays and panoramic windows.

Brisbane Metro will service 18 stations from Eight Mile Plains to the Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital and simplifies travel through turn-up-and-go services, 24/7 on weekends.

Our city is growing fast and Brisbane Metro will help ensure we cater for that growth. Expect to jump on board in 2024.
