Get around during the games

The Commonwealth Games transport received a great deal of attention from the organising committee and the Gold Coast City Council since the city decided to be considered to host the Games. The result was the transport operations plan, a document with the objective of making travel and moving around the city during the Commonwealth Games 2018 an easy and pleasurable experience for visitors and locals.

The Gold Coast transport hub is well distributed among Trams (the G-Link), buses and Trains (Translink), capable of  handling the demand, all of which will be free during the Commonwealth Games 2018.

Additionally transport coverage will be achieved by encouraging users to use active ways of transport such as walking and cycling, but also by providing free shuttle buses from central locations and main train/bus stations directly to the different venues
