Hop aboard Council’s free Easter holiday buses

Skip the pressure of parking this Easter with Council's free holiday buses.

Travel will be free on all local bus routes (excluding 620, 622, 630 and 631) between 25 March and 3 April with a free shuttle on the road between Peregian Beach and Noosa Heads.

"The free holiday bus initiative is ever-popular, with tens of thousands of people typically climbing aboard during the Easter and Christmas holidays," Noosa Council Planning and Infrastructure Director Martin Drydale said.

"Once again we're thrilled to deliver this initiative in cooperation with Sunbus and TransLink." The free holiday buses help encourage residents and visitors to give public transport a try.

"More than 60 per cent of passengers polled during the recent Christmas free holiday bus initiative said they had access to a car in Noosa, so it's great to see people actively choosing to take the bus instead," Mr Drydale said.

The survey also found more than 50 per cent of passengers polled were locals.

Travel on a range of regular services, and a temporary service will be free this Easter.

Regular services:

- Route 626 - Sunrise Beach to Tewantin

- Route 627 - Sunshine Beach to Tewantin

- Route 628 - Noosa Junction to Noosa Parklands

- Route 629 - Noosa Junction to Tewantin

- Route 632 - Cooran to Noosa Junction

Additional temporary service: Route 064 - between Peregian Beach and Noosa Heads.

For residents living between Peregian and Noosa, instead of catching Route 620, the temporary service, Route 064 (operated by Sunbus) is for you.

The Boreen Point Flexilink service and Noosa Council Cabs services will also be free from 25 March to 3 April (normal booking procedures apply).

Generally, a weekend timetable will operate on most public holidays.

Timetables are available at www.translink.com.au or call 13 12 30 anytime.
