New service to Banyo
Council is pleased to advise a new fortnightly Council Cabs service to the Banyo Retail Centre will be available to residents of Banyo, Nudgee and Nudgee Beach from Thursday 21 February 2019.

All Council Cabs now honour the Queensland Government Companion Card, allowing free travel for anyone accompanying a person with disability who requires attendant care support.

To make sure there is room for everyone, shopping is limited to five regular plastic bags or three recycled bags, or the equivalent, per passenger.

Operation times and costs

Council Cabs operates weekly in most Brisbane suburbs. In some areas, services are offered twice a week. The service picks you up from your home and takes you to your local shopping centre.

Each one-way trip costs between $1 and $2.50. This fare is paid to the driver as you board.

An Authorised Companion is free.
