History and use
Transport planning for the 1982 Brisbane XII Commonwealth Games involved representatives from three tiers of government and private industry. The Games Public Transport Co-ordinating Committee, led by former army logistics chief and Colonel Ron Sherman, oversaw the Games bus and train services. A total of 192,670 people were carried on the bus-rail shuttle via Banoon and Sunnybank. The interchanges at Banoon and Sunnybank were constracted under the MTA interchange program. Other Games visitors used private bus services from the Gold Coast or shuttle buses from Garden City and Salisbury. These arrangements, coupled with the provision of ample car-parks and road traffic control, demonstrated to many new patrons the comfort and effidency of Brisbane's public transport system.
