Service updates

Changes to bus network – 25 November 2013

Due to the new Sunshine Coast bus network that began on 25 November 2013, some bus connections to Flexilink services have changed. Please check your new connection times before travelling. No changes are expected to be made to the Flexilink services times.

Kenilworth to Mapleton

From Monday 5 August 2013:

  • The Kenilworth to Mapleton Flexilink service will no longer connect with the Hinterland Connect bus service on Saturdays or public holidays.
  • The Hinterland Connect bus service will not operate on a Saturday.
  • Flexilink will still operate as a service to Mapleton if booked.
  • The service will connect with the Maleny to Nambour Hinterland Connect bus service on Monday to Friday only.

What are Flexilink services?

Flexilink provides cheap, safe, reliable and accessible public transport to people with fewer transport options. The services:

  • operate on a pre-booked basis
  • run three return trips per day, Monday to Saturday
  • in most cases, connect with existing public transport services for onward journeys
  • travel along a chosen route (people using the Flexilink service must meet the vehicle along this route).
  • use a taxi in place of a bus.

The Flexilink trial services are funded by council's Public Transport Levy.

The services reduce the need for single occupancy car use. The more public transport options that are available on the Sunshine Coast the less people will need to use their cars.
