BRISBANE Bus Lines will depart from Murgon for the last time on Saturday morning before Pursers Coaches take over the Murgon to Caboolture run on Monday.

Pursers Coaches director Andrew Dascombe said the service will run Monday-Friday.

"The morning run will stay the same, but instead of leaving (Caboolture) at 5.20pm we have put that back to 4.30pm and that gets people home a little bit earlier," he said.

"The fares will be exactly the same until we work out what goes on."

The Murgon-based business will trial the run until February to see if it is financially viable.

Mr Dascombe said travellers who bought tickets from Brisbane Bus Lines before the change was announced do not have to worry.

"We will be honouring all Brisbane Bus Lines tickets," he said.

"If they have a purchased ticket bring it down as normal and we can sort it out from there."

The service will not operate on weekends or public holidays.

Phone Pursers Coaches for more information on 4168 1533.
