The G: Link

The G has arrived

The long awaited and highly anticipated Gold Coast Light Rail is finally operating and it's very exciting to see our very first "trams" running around our fare city.

Born out of a growing necessity to service our locals, tourists and growing student population, The G is a welcome addition to our thriving city.

There are 16 stations between Griffith University and Broadbeach with a round trip costing just $4.14 on your Go Card or $3.32 off peak. Fairs are higher if you don't have a Go Card at $6.10.

Stay Alert and Look Both Ways

These modern trams are incredibly quiet so here are some pedestrian safety tips for keeping yourself safe while driving, walking or cycling near The G.

Drivers
  • Do not park or travel along the tracks

  • You should only cross over the tracks at intersections and when directed by traffic lights.

  • Don't queue across the tracks

  • Only perform a U-turn where signed


Cyclists
  • Stay alert and keep an eye out for trams

  • Look both ways and when crossing all streets

  • Never ride your bike along tram tracks


Pedestrians
