History

The Cleveland railway line first opened in 1888.

The line from Lota to Cleveland was rebuilt, and reopened on a new alignment to Thorneside in 1982 and Cleveland in 1984.

Line guide and services

Most services stop at all stations to Bowen Hills railway station. The typical travel time between Cleveland and Brisbane City is approximately 56 minutes (to Central). During weekday peak times, a few services may skip some stations between Park Road and Manly stations, for faster travel times for commuters working in the Brisbane central business district. In addition, an afternoon service on school days only operates express between Cleveland and Buranda stations, stopping only at Thorneside, Manly and Lota.

Cleveland line services typically continue as Doomben line services.

Passengers for/from the Beenleigh and Tennyson lines change at Park Road, Gold Coast line at South Bank, Ipswich and Rosewood lines at Roma Street, and all other lines at Central.
