Translink has revamped its website to include detailed route, stop and transfer information on a new journey planner, according to Transport and Main Roads Minister Scott Emerson.

Emerson says the new journey planner’s features, launched today, will make it easier to navigate South East Queensland's public transport network.

"TransLink's new journey planner uses Google Maps, with easy to follow directions, clearly defined routes and multiple options for travel, including the nearest go card outlet," Emerson says.

"It can map out all of TransLink's bus, train and ferry routes, almost 15,000 bus stops and all of TransLink's 573 go card locations."

The TransLink website records more than 31 million hits a year, with more than half of those visiting to view the journey planner, according to Emerson.

"Our customers have told us that they wanted it to be easier to find routes and other services that were close and relevant to them," Emerson says.

"The Stops and Stations feature has also been improved to show the stops near your current location, which is an ideal tool for people using mobile phone or iPads to plan their journey while on the go."
