Traffic and transport
The City of Gold Coast offers a variety of transport options, many of which have a strong recreational flavour well-suited to the city's outdoor lifestyle.
The rapid growth of the region has led to a number of road and transport projects and initiatives to improve the city's transport networks.
The Gold Coast City Transport Strategy 2031 is a city-changing initiative, delivering a world-class transport system for the Gold Coast. It will create a smart, connected and liveable city under a one network approach.
We’ve also developed the Road Safety Plan 2015-2020 to maximise the safety of residents and visitors as they move around our city.
The City of Gold Coast's whole-of-city parking plan aims to ensure safe and convenient parking for the community, while promoting economic growth in a sustainable way.
Our new City Plan will guide future development on the Gold Coast as it continues to mature and grow as a city. Under the draft plan some parts of the city will evolve to create many exciting economic and lifestyle opportunities. Other areas will be protected for their existing character and environmental value.
Transport is critical to the success of the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games™ (GC2018). Delivering a successful transport operation for GC2018 is a significant task and requires careful planning and investment.
City of Gold Coast works in partnership with the community and TransLink to provide a number of public transport options from bus and taxi services to heavy rail.
Walking, cycling or taking public transport can be easy ways to move around the Gold Coast. We have maps and guides so you can plan your journey. Primary schools have joined our successful Active School Travel program to reduce the dependency of driving a car to and from school.
We are committed to the safety of residents and visitors as they move around our city, and we strive to provide a safer environment for all road users.
The Traffic Management and Operations Branch of the City of Gold Coast plays a major role in ensuring the right environment for all road users.
