  • Brisbane LGA has the highest public transport mode share in SEQ (18%). However, Lockyer Valley, Scenic Rim and Toowoomba have a public transport mode share of less than 2%.
  • Across the 12 LGAs of SEQ, 70% of employed residents worked within their home LGA in 2016.
  • On average, residents could access 43% of SEQ’s jobs within a 45-minute car commute in 2019.
