qconnect has introduced a zonal fare system to make it easier to get around and don't forget the hail 'n' ride Cairns Sunbus offer...this means you can board or get off a bus between schedules bus stops.Just signal the driver by placing your hand out when the bus comes along and ring the bell when you want to get off and go to the front of the bus and let the driver know.The driver will let you off at the nearest safe spot.
