Brisbane provides a reliable network of travel and transport links, as well as paths and walkways that make up one of Australia's most compact and foot-friendly city centres. You can also take advantage of the city's wide range of public transport options to help you explore the city.
Translink, Brisbane's integrated ticketing system, provides students with the flexibility to travel on train, bus and ferry services using just the one card. Go Cards can be bought at Queensland Rail stations and selected ticketing agents and provide fares cheaper than buying paper tickets at transit stations. The green student Go Card offers full-time students even further travel discounts.
For more information about the Go Card and the various transport networks, visit the Translink website.
Brisbane's speedy network of electric trains covers the broadest reaches of Brisbane and provides direct access to the city and outer suburbs. An AirTrain service that is completely integrated into the Queensland Rail suburban network provides travellers with regular trains running from Brisbane Airport directly to Brisbane City and the Gold Coast. Passengers can travel on a single ticket from any station in South East Queensland to Brisbane Airport.
Brisbane’s comprehensive bus service runs throughout the city connecting the outer and inner suburbs to the CBD, major shopping centres, railway stations and ferry terminals. There are also special NightLink bus services after midnight on Friday and Saturday. Tickets can be bought on buses and selected ticketing agents.
Visitors can also make use of the free weekday bus services, the Loop and Spring Hill Loop, which circle the central business district every 10 minutes and stop at visitor-worthy destinations including the Queen Street Mall, Conrad Treasury Casino, City Botanic Gardens and Riverside Centre and link the City and Spring Hill precincts.
CityCats are one of the most enjoyable ways to get around the city. Brisbane's CityCat and ferry services glide along the river, allowing travellers to sight-see and access key city spots. Tickets can be bought on board Brisbane's CityCats and ferry services or at most newsagents and selected retail outlets, or you can use your Go Card. Students can also take advantage of the free City Hopper ferry service, which travels along the river from North Quay to Sydney St, New Farm.
Brisbane is well equipped with an array of taxi services, including disability services and larger group bookings - up to 10. There are taxi ranks near business centres, shopping precincts and venues and bookings can also be made online or by phone.
