Brisbane Transport is a business unit of Brisbane City Council, operating suburban and urban bus services under the TransLink integrated public transport scheme in Brisbane, the state capital of Queensland, Australia. The origins of Brisbane Transport can be seen as far back as 1885 when horse trams serviced Brisbane. Before the council had withdrawn support in 1961, the council supported the trams by expanding the network and upgrading the fleet of trams. This was the start of the Brisbane City Council's investment in public transport.
In 2010, the Government of Queensland and Brisbane City Council's support for public transport has never been higher with over 1,061 buses in service, Translink and the construction and upgrade of key infrastructure such as busways. Brisbane Transport enjoys the use of the network of Brisbane busways consisting of the South-East Busway, Northern Busway and the Eastern Busway, which are grade separated from other roads and are served by large stations.

Famous quotes containing the word transport:
“One may disavow and disclaim vices that surprise us, and whereto our passions transport us; but those which by long habits are rooted in a strong and ... powerful will are not subject to contradiction. Repentance is but a denying of our will, and an opposition of our fantasies.”
—Michel de Montaigne (15331592)
