Brisbane Travel Card

The easiest way to get around Brisbane is to pick up a TRANSLink Go Card which will allow you to travel seamlessly on all TRANSLink bus, ferry and rail services across South-East Queensland. Go cards are available from Queensland Rail stations, online, over the phone or selected retailers. You need to pay a $10 refundable deposit when you purchase your first Go card. You can top up the card balance like a prepaid mobile phone whenever it suits. Single one way journeys within the city area with a Go card are around $3. Go card fares are cheaper than paper ticket fares. For more information gocard.translink.com.au

You can also pre-order a Go Event Card through your Festival Booking Cart for $24. This will give you unlimited travel across the network for the duration of the festival (6 days).  Must be paid in full at time of booking and must be booked by 29 August (age 15 and over).

Children under 5 travel free.  Children 5-14 should purchase a child Go Card (NOT AVAILABLE through the Festival) to receive 50% concession rates.
