The Springwood Bus Station, at Springwood, is served by TransLink bus routes. It is a major interchange for TransLink's Southern Region, being an important stop for Logan City Bus Service routes between Brisbane and Loganholme. The architecture of the station is based upon the steel and glass designs of Brisbane's busway stations. It is in Zone 5 of the TransLink integrated public transport system.

Proposed Busway Extension[edit]

It is proposed to extend the South East Busway to connect Eight Mile Plains Station with Springwood Bus Station by a dedicated 4.8 kilometres (3.0 mi) busway. The extension is to coincide with an upgrade to the adjacent section of the Pacific Motorway. Delivery is to be staged depending on funding between 2011 and 2026. The preferred alignment for the busway extension corridor was determined in 2007 and a Concept Design Study was undertaken by the Queensland Government in 2009.[2] Currently busses must exit the busway and travel along the Pacific Motorway to reach Springwood Bus Station.

An additional Station between Eight Mile Plains and Springwood is proposed at Rochedale Station.
