Rail Delays Expected As Interim Timetable Comes Into Force

Check Your Service For Changes

Queensland Rail's scaled back interim timetable begins today, as they deal with the ongoing driver shortage.

The revised schedule will be in effect for the next two weeks with dozens of services cancelled across the south-east network.

Despite the changes, authorities can't guarantee there won't be further delays for commuters.

100 additional train drivers and 100 extra train guards are being recruited to assist with rostering issues.

"For the next two weeks, as we move through the current roster, there may be additional service alterations. We are trying to minimise those as much as possible," QLD Rail CEO Helen Gluer said on Monday.

While Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk, furious at the timetable debacle, said the government would review the new schedule as a matter of urgency.

Check out the interim timetable details below:

Under the interim timetable, the following alterations have been made. These alterations have been selected based on least impact, where there is low patronage and a minimised delay to the next service.

Queensland Rail advises customers that in addition to below, some further alterations may be required over the next two weeks as they transition to the new interim timetable. We will keep this page updated and encourage you to check back before you travel.

The interim timetable is now available in the journey planner. Use the online journey planner or MyTransLink app to plan your journey - including any changes to your connecting bus service - for the rest of the week.

Passenger information displays (PIDs) at train stations have also been updated to display the new interim timetables from first service on Tuesday 25 October. We apologise for any inconvenience and thank you for your patience.
