CityGlider bus services

The CityGlider buses provide high-frequency transport from West End to Teneriffe (Blue) and Ashgrove to Stones Corner (Maroon).

After running for almost a decade, the iconic blue CityGliders have had a makeover. The new buses feature USB chargers and a fresh design that provides better visibility for customers.

The CityGlider service links to the CityCycle bike hire scheme. CityCycle provides bike hire stations near CityGlider stops. This enables access to the bus service from Teneriffe, CBD, South Brisbane and West End. You can also link your CityCycle membership to your TransLink go card.

The CityGlider and CityCycle schemes are part of Council's commitment to reduce traffic congestion and improve public transport across the inner city.  In addition to CityCat and CityFerry services, both schemes also link to:

  • busway and rail connections
  • Central Business District (CBD) attractions
  • new residential developments.


The CityGlider bus service includes:

  • pre-paid ticketing and dual-door boarding for faster entry and exit
  • a fast and regular timetable
  • 24-hour-a-day service on Friday and Saturday and 18-hour-a-day service from Sunday to Thursday.
