Sustainable travel choices
The Gold Coast is unlike other cities. Our growing population, vibrant tourist industry and multiple centres make our transport challenges unique.
By encouraging Gold Coast residents and visitors to choose more sustainable methods of travel such as walking, cycling, carpooling and taking public transport, we aim to reduce congestion, improve air quality, increase health and save money.
As part of the Gold Coast Transport Strategy 2031, we aim for as many daily trips as possible to include walking, cycling and public transport.
We’re rolling out our Draft Active Transport Plan and we want you to tell us what would make you walk and cycle more. Your input will help us prioritise and build the missing links in the active transport network.
Walking is free, healthy and an accessible alternative to using a car. A walk to the shops, school or work will help to improve your fitness and reduce stress. You could also try one of our great Gold Coast walking tracks.
Cycling is a great way to commute around the Gold Coast. It saves you money, keeps you fit and it’s good for the environment and reduces congestion.
There are a number of public transport options available from our partner TransLink, from buses to heavy rail and the G:link, to travel around the Gold Coast.
The Workplace Travel Program will help your employees save money, demonstrate alternative ways to travel to work and ease local congestion by encouraging your visitors and workforce to consider smarter workplace travel.
Love to Ride Gold Coast is a fun, free workplace cycle challenge. Find out more about what happened in last year’s challenge and stay tuned for details about Love to Ride 2017.
The Active School Travel program is helping to reduce traffic congestion around schools by encouraging walking, cycling, riding a scooter, skating, and taking public transport.
Our maps and guides will help you discover the best walking, cycling and public transport routes around the Gold Coast. Why not change the way you move and explore your neighbourhood or the wider Gold Coast area?
