Personalised Public Transport

Brisbane City Council is committed to getting residents home quicker and safer with more travel options. Personalised Public Transport (PPT) is a low-cost hail and ride service that helps connect residents to their local transport hubs. 

This service operates in areas where TransLink services are limited with specially marked wheelchair-accessible and air conditioned maxi-cabs provided by Black & White Cabs.

PPT services:

  • carry up to 10 people per trip
  • can pick up and drop off passengers where safe to do so on a fixed route
  • operate on a loop
  • are branded with 'Personalised Public Transport' and the Brisbane City Council logo.

PPT is different to the Council Cabs service.

Fares

All PPT fares are $1 each way (no concessions apply). 

Customers who transfer from a PPT to a TransLink service must then pay the applicable TransLink fare.

Routes

Council works with Black & White Cabs to provide nine PPT routes across Brisbane:

All times listed are approximate only.
