Brisbane Airtrain Gets (Slightly) Extended Hours

Whenever we’ve rounded up cheap ways to get to and from Australia’s airports, we’ve always noted that the suckiest thing about Brisbane’s Airtrain is that it stops running after 8pm. So the news that its hours are getting extended is welcome.

The Brisbane Times reports that from December 12, trains will run until 10pm. That’s still not ideal, as planes do arrive after that hour, especially during daylight saving as Queensland is running an hour behind southern states, but it’s an improvement.

Here’s a thought: what if Brisbane took the idea of airport-friendly hours from Sydney, and Sydney took the idea of open return tickets from Brisbane? Oh well, I can dream . . . Thanks Beau for the pointer!
