Rail safe alternative to roads

RAIL Back On Track will continue to work constructively with the government to improve passenger rail services between Brisbane and Gympie North.

This community support group advocates for public transport passengers and were influential in getting the new daytime train for Gympie.

"We saw on the inaugural run back in June just how much the hinterland communities appreciated their new public transport link," a Rail Back On Track spokesperson said.

The group is currently pushing for shuttle services to operate regularly during the day between Gympie to Nambour so passengers can connect with Brisbane trains.

"People need reasonable public transport access to such things as medical treatments in Nambour and Brisbane," Mr Dow said.

"Vehicle numbers through Gympie are growing at 4% each year. Many would prefer to stay off the Bruce Hwy."
