NEW GOLD COAST BUS TIMETABLES FROM MONDAY 8 JANUARY

NEW GOLD COAST BUS TIMETABLES FROM MONDAY 8 JANUARY

  • 22 Dec 0

TransLink is reshaping Gold Coast public transport with new bus timetables and making changes to a number of local bus services.

Following the early opening of Stage 2 of the G:link tram, the bus changes are on track for delivery on Monday 8 January 2018.

Stage 2 of G:link will connect Gold Coast University Hospital to Helensvale Station, so TransLink is:

  • Removing bus routes which duplicate the new tram extension
  • Reinvesting to deliver more buses on other local routes
  • Updating timetables to reflect current traffic conditions
  • Changing bus stops on some routes

Key features of the changes

  • More reliable timetables which reflect current traffic conditions.
  • Three routes operating more often with longer operating hours
  • Nine routes with buses running on average every 15 minutes (or more often), 7am-7pm on weekdays
  • Longer operating hours on a number of routes
  • Better bus/tram connection times at Broadbeach South station on weekends with route 700 running at the same frequency as the tram
  • Less temporary diversions for route 705 due to events and road closures on Surf Parade.

How to prepare for changes

  • Your new bus times will be available in TransLink’s journey planner. Click here for timetables.
  • You can get a copy of your new bus timetable by visiting translink.com.au; from TransLink kiosks; or by calling 13 12 30 and asking for a copy to be posted to you.
