The Sunshine Coast Public Transport Guide is a fantastic resource for all your Public Transport enquiries.
The Sunshine Coast offers a variety of reliable, stress free, affordable and smart public transport services; bus, train, Flexilink services, taxis, Council Cabs, and airport transport just to name a few.
There is an extensive bus network on the Coast servicing the coastal cities, hinterland and most places in between. To discover which bus service is the best for you consult the TransLink Journey Planner.
Train services to and from Brisbane arrive regularly on the Coast with a number of stops between Caboolture in the south and Cooran to the north. The best way to explore your train options is to use the TransLink Journey Planner and consult the TranLlink rail network map.
In areas not regularly serviced by bus or train, a Flexilink service may be available. Further information on this service can be accessed through the Flexilink page.
To help accelerate improvements to local public transport services, infrastructure and to promote patronage, council resolved on 21 April 2009 to introduce a Public Transport Levy of $20.00 per rateable property. Through this investment council also aims to build stronger partnerships with the state government through policy development, improved advocacy, catalyst projects and seek funding to attract improved public transport investment. More information on the Public Transport levy, including a list of funded projects can be found on council's website.
During the peak holiday Christmas season, Council, TransLink, and Sunbus provide free holiday bus services throughout the Sunshine Coast. This service reduces traffic congestion at the busiest locations such as Noosa Heads, Mooloolaba and Caloundra by making free, easy, stress-free and convenient public transport available throughout the Coast. Further information can be accessed at the Free Holiday Bus page.
With all these options at your fingertips there is no need to struggle through the traffic and parking chaos in your car. Leave the car at home, get out on the public transport and let someone else do the driving!
