TransLink is urging the Transport Workers Union (TWU) and Sunbus to
come to agreement as soon as possible to stop further impacts on
Sunshine Coast public transport users.
TransLink CEO Peter Strachan said Sunshine Coast customers werer understandably upset with these ongoing disruptions.
“I’ve made it very clear we want the TWU and Sunbus to use every available avenue so we can have buses running again as soon as possible,” Mr Strachan.
“TransLink will continue to use all available means to inform schools and customers of any disruptions.
“Sunbus buses will not run across the Sunshine Coast today [AUGUST 5], Monday [AUGUST 8] and on Tuesday [AUGUST 9] due to the industrial action.
“The action affects all 28 urban bus routes (600 series) run by Sunbus.”
Mr Strachan said Sunbus had advised TransLink it could not guarantee services due to the overtime ban, so there would be no services today, Monday and Tuesday to ensure no passengers were left behind.
He said Sunbus buses would run as scheduled on the weekend.
BusLink school buses will still run as usual but children who caught Sunbus buses to school would need to make alternative arrangements.
Hinterland Connect, Maleny-Landsborough-Beerwah, Council Cabs and FlexiLink services are not affected and will run as scheduled. Any connecting Sunbus services will not run.
Mr Strachan said Sunbus customers would need to have alternative travel arranged for today, including late night services, such as active transport or carpooling.
For more information, contact TransLink on translink.com.au or phone on 13 12 30, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
The latest arrangements for the industrial action are on the TransLink website.
