Brisbane City Council's buses are low-floor buses allowing easier access for all passengers.

These low-floor buses have:

  • level access through the front door instead of steps
  • a ramp for wheelchair access with a loaded weight of 300 kilograms.
  • two wheelchair spaces for wheelchairs up to 1300 mm long and 800 mm wide.
