Transport

Brisbane is a compact, connected city, ideal for walking and getting around via the many scenic river and bridge walks. The city’s efficient transport network makes it easy for visitors to find their way about the city.

Go Card

Go card is your electronic ticket to travel on all TransLink bus, train (including Airtrain), CityCat, ferry and tram services in South East Queensland. It’s simple to use. All you need to do is top-up your card, touch on at the start of your journey and touch off at the end. Your fare is automatically calculated and deducted from your card balance and it’s cheaper than the cost of a paper ticket. You can purchase a go card for a refundable deposit of $10 (adult) or $5 (child, concession, senior), and they are available from retail locations such as 7-Eleven stores, Queensland Rail Station ticket offices, and on board CityCat river services.
