New 2018 Schedules for Langdale and Bowen Island are Now Available

After a broad public consultation process, we are introducing new schedules for Langdale and Bowen Island routes that will be effective January 2, 2018. We have restructured the way we are delivering service to the Sunshine Coast and Bowen Island to ensure we can deliver reliable, on-time service at the times most important to our customers. These new schedules are part of a broad range of changes that will improve the way we serve Sunshine Coast and Bowen Island residents now and in the future.
