Free bus travel for seniors & veterans

Travel for free on Kinetic (formerly Surfside) buses with a sticker pass on your Translink go card.

Local seniors and veterans can travel on Kinetic buses for free:

  • Monday to Friday (including public holidays), 8.30am to 3.30pm
  • Saturday and Sunday, all day.

The free bus travel for seniors and veterans is designed to encourage more Gold Coasters to use public transport and to make better use of existing services. The free bus travel for seniors and veterans also aims to help seniors and veterans better connect with their communities.

Free bus travel is part of the Gold Coast City Transport Strategy 2031 and is funded by the City. It is being delivered in partnership with the Queensland Government's Department of Transport and Main Roads, Translink division and Kinetic.
