Ease the squeeze for Sunshine Coast commuters

Sunshine Coast commuters will benefit from double the capacity on a popular afternoon Nambour service from this week.

Member for Maroochydore Fiona Simpson said the 3.30pm Central to Nambour service would be boosted from a three carriage to a six carriage train.

“Earlier this year, I asked Queensland Rail to look at smarter, more cost-effective ways to improve services on the Sunshine Coast line,” Ms Simpson said.

“From this week, Sunshine Coast commuters will have a more comfortable experience on their journey home, with twice the seating capacity available on the 3.30pm Nambour service,” he said.

“I’m pleased we have been able to deliver a common sense solution to improve the daily commute for people on the Sunshine Coast line.”

More than 1000 passengers use Sunshine Coast service during the afternoon peak period.
