We find the GLink is quite convenient to move around Gold Coast and it’s comfortable. Unfortunately it covered limited areas at the moment.

The tram wasn’t running down the Gold Coast Highway when we last visited in 2010. This was a great option for getting from Broadbeach to Surfers without the stress of traffic or parking. It doesn’t get much better than that. It also goes to Helensvale...More

This is a super easy service to Brisbane - clean&safe while you can have a chilled view of all the suburbs on the way.

Easy ride and affordable. Good seats and on time. Safe. Security cameras are well monitored and staff often onboard to check on passengers if someone intoxicated or causing troubles.
