Discover how we are protecting the Gold Coast's natural environment - our spectacular beaches, hinterland ranges, bushland and waterways - and how you can help.

Sustainable Transport

Taking a bike on a train

Most people travel in some form every day - on the Gold Coast we make about 2.6 million daily trips, with a high dependence on motor vehicles.

The number of trips made on the Gold Coast will increase by 44 per cent between 2011 and 2031. This means greater pressure and increased demands on our transport network.

Our Gold Coast City Transport Strategy 2031 aims to reduce car dependency and significantly increase levels of walking, cycling, car pooling and public transport.

Through this strategy, we are creating an integrated and sustainable transport system to ensure the Gold Coast really is the best place to live, work and play.

We are also reducing the need for road widening, which can be costly and negatively affect natural habitats and local amenity.

Why not choose to walk, cycle, take public transport or carpool to your next destination?

More people walking, cyling and using public transport means reduced traffic congestion, better health for our residents and cleaner air.

You can help make a difference.
