What are the best ways to get around the Gold Coast?

Cycling

One of the best ways to get around the city is with a bike. The Gold Coast has more than 600 kilometres of bike paths that connect to public transport routes and various neighbourhoods. The city also has a bike-share program, which is an affordable way to explore and reduce your carbon footprint at the same time. There are more than 30 bike stations around the Gold Coast, and you can download the Mobike App for up-to-date prices and a location map.

Bus

The region's buses aren't the fastest way to get around. You'll need to factor in time for delays, which may not be the best option if you're trying to stick to a tight schedule. TransLink is the main bus operator, and Surfside Buslines will connect you to the south and north of the Gold Coast. If you're staying out late, you can take the after-midnight bus that's run by NightLink.

Taxi

Once your flights to the Gold Coast land at the airport, the best way to get to your hotel is with a taxi. The Gold Coast Cabs are easy to spot outside the arrivals terminal and also operate all over the city. A one-way trip from the Gold Coast Airport (OOL) in Coolangatta to Surfers Paradise will cost $55. Another alternative is Uber.

If you don't mind the crowds, the weather is perfect for days at the beach and water sports.
