Bus accessibility

All Brisbane City Council buses are low-floor allowing easy access for all passengers.

These low-floor buses have:

  • level access through the front door instead of steps
  • a ramp for wheelchair or mobility device access with a maximum capacity of 300 kilograms.
  • two designated spaces for wheelchairs or mobility devices up to 1300 mm long and 800 mm wide.

Bus stop accessibility upgrades

Council is reviewing Brisbane's bus stops to determine which stops we can upgrade to improve accessibility. Find out more about the Bus Stop Accessibility Improvement Program.
