A train has collided with a bus on Brisbane's north side after the bus driver became stuck in traffic while stopped across train tracks.

The crash, described by police as "low impact", happened at a rail crossing on South Pine Road at Alderley just before 5pm on Tuesday.

Queensland Ambulance Service supervisor Glen Morrison said there were about 25 people on the bus.

"All the patrons aboard the bus and train have been uninjured, there's just some traffic delays," he said.

Bus passenger Faith Jarvis said the bus had become stuck in traffic while stopped over the rail lines.

She told Fairfax radio initially nobody on board was concerned.

"About 30 seconds later people started getting twitchy and some people started standing up because they could see that a train was coming or the signals were starting to flash," she said.

"At that stage the bus driver wasn't really doing anything to let us off the bus and someone very forcefully yelled 'open the doors'."

Ms Jarvis said everybody got off in an orderly fashion, when it became obvious that the train wouldn't have enough time to stop and hit the rear of the bus.

Translink advised customers the incident would cause delays of up to an hour.
