A slain Brisbane bus driver will be formally honoured on Tuesday with a condolence motion by the city council.

Manmeet Alisher, also known as Manmeet Sharma, 29, was killed last Friday when he stopped his bus to pick up passengers at Moorooka on Brisbane's southside and an incendiary device was thrown at him.

Moorooka man Anthony O'Donohue, 48, has been charged with his murder, as well as the attempted murder of the 11 other people on the bus at the time.

Manmeet's brother Amit Sharma and members of his extended family attended a memorial service at the Brisbane Sikh Temple at Eight Mile Plains on Monday evening.

They travelled from India following the attack, and Lord Mayor Graham Quirk, who was also at the service, told those gathered they will do everything they can for Manmeet's family.

"I've set up an appeal to provide some financial support to the family, so that they can be supplied with the necessary funds to come to Australia when they need to during the course of justice," Mr Quirk said.
