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.


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.

The Gold Coast Commonwealth Walkway is a fascinating 10 kilometre walk from the Southport Chambers in the Southport CBD, to the Evandale Council Chambers at the Gold Coast Cultural Precinct.


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.

The City of Gold Coast runs free cycle workshops for every age and ability.

Public transport

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.

Workplace Travel 

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.

Active School Travel

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.
