Redland City Council mayor Karen Williams discussed ways to improve public transport to the bay islands with Public Transport assistant minister Steve Minnikin on Wednesday.
At the meeting with Mr Minnikin, Cr Williams and island councillor Mark Edwards asked for the Translink system to be extended to the islands.
The meeting was less than a week after Cr Williams met with members of the ill-fated Translink board in Cleveland to discuss the same issues and extension of the Translink system to the islands.
On Tuesday, the government axed the Translink board and announced plans to restructure the body within the Transport Department.
After Wednesday's meeting with Mr Minnikin, Cr Williams said she was "uncertain" how the Translink restructure would affect Redland City's public transport.
"I'm not sure what it will eventually mean for Redlands but the outcome of my meeting with the assistant minister was positive," she said.
Under the government's proposed transport restructure, TransLink will no longer operate as a statutory authority confined to the state's south east and will become part of the Transport Department.
Cr Williams said she asked Mr Minnikin the same questions she asked the then Translink chief executive Neil Scales when he visited Cleveland last week.
However, her questions on when the go card system would be extended to the islands, when the Eastern Busway would be extended to Capalaba and when the Cleveland rail line would be duplicated, were left unanswered.
When contacted by Redland Times, Translink refused to detail Mr Scales' responses to the mayor's questions.
Yesterday, lobby group Rail Back on Track's Robert Dow called on Transport Minister Scott Emerson to detail implications of the changes for Redland.
Mr Dow said the changes would affect the city and could mean, on one hand, fewer bus services but, on the other hand, an extension of the go card system to the bay islands.
"There are possibly some positives with this restructure because there will only be the one body dealing with public transport across the state which will mean, hopefully, people will be able to use the go card on the island ferries," Mr Dow said.
"But we want to see the new Translink be given absolute planning authority for public transport, so it can override decisions by Brisbane Transport.
"A more efficient network, to satellite cities such as Redlands, would result if the new Translink took over all the network planning," he said.
On Tuesday, Mr Emerson said the restructured department would oversee subsidised regional ferry, airline and coach services, the Qconnect bus network, TravelTrain services and school bus services.
He said 1970 full-time staff would be cut from both the department and TransLink at an estimated saving of $287million over the next four years.
