Translink will double Nightlink bus services through December, Transport Minister Rachel Nolan announced today.

Demand for the service has been high with more than 15,000 people catching the late night train and bus services each month this year.

Nightlink public transport services are bus, train and 'FlatFare' taxis that run across the Translink network late on Friday and Saturday nights between 1am and 5am.

Nolan says Nightlink buses will run every 30 minutes from 1am to 5.30am from Friday, December 4 to Saturday, December 19, instead of the normal hourly services.

"Security guards are on board these buses and positioned at Nightlink bus stops in the Valley and CBD for added safety," Nolan says.

"Translink Transit Officers patrol Nightlink train services with police providing roving patrols to Central, Fortitude Valley, Roma Street and South Brisbane train stations, again for added safety."

Ms Nolan said Nightlink 'FlatFare' taxis would operate from selected ranks from the earlier time of 10pm to 5.30am on Friday and Saturday nights, throughout December.
