What You Need To Know About Catching The Bus This Week

Commuters will travel for free on Brisbane buses after the council and union again failed to cement a new enterprise agreement.

The Rail, Tram and Bus Union met with Brisbane City Council on Tuesday in an attempt to resolve a long-running dispute over pay, rostering and safety issues.

RTBU spokesman Tom Brown told AAP said although some progress was made, it was not enough to stop the fourth consecutive week of industrial action.

Unionised drivers will offer free travel to commuters all day on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.

They will also refuse to wear uniforms.

Mr Brown said the union expected all of its 2000 members to take part.

"They're getting right into the spirit of the free dress and free fares," he said on Tuesday.

"The public has been very supportive of us so it's an opportunity to say thank you to the public for their support."

Brisbane City Council has been contacted for comment.
