TOOWOOMBA businesses are set for a major boost this Easter after Bus Queensland and Easterfest combined to provide free public transport through the city.
It is the first time the Toowoomba bus network will be operating during the Easter weekend.
Easterfest city coordinator Drew Vallejos said the decision follows the success of last year's loop service when more than 2500 people travelled between Queens Park and Grand Central shopping centre.
"We have an opportunity to expand that service so the local economy can benefit," Mr Vallejos said.
Toowoomba Chamber of Commerce president Geoff McDonald welcomed the annoucement, which he believes will boost Toowoomba businesses.
"The challenge is now to work in with organisers and take advantage of what could be a great opportunity," Mr McDonald said.
