  • Concessions


    Zones / system maps

    TransLink operates within 23 zones across south-east Queensland from Noosa on the Sunshine to Cooloongatta on the Gold Coast and west to Helidon.

    The zones radiate as a series of concentric circles from Brisbane central business district.

    Fares
    (New fares have been fully implemented across the system)

    TransLink will transform public transport in south-east Queensland with cheaper integrated fares and new regional services. Transport and Main Roads Minister Paul Lucas announced the new fare structure for the region with the introduction TransLink from 1 July 2004. Fares will be calculated on the number of zones used in a journey. (TransLink will operate within 23 zones across south-east Queensland.)

    The fare table below illustrates the cost of a single adult fare according to the number of zones a passenger uses in a journey. To work out the TransLink fare for your specific journey, try out our journey planner.
