TransLink go cards

Cards are available to purchase at Coop Bookshop (the Coop Bookshop can only refund up to A$50 in cash). Go cards can also be purchased from train stations, by telephone on 13 12 30, or from the TransLink website.

Fares are about 30 percent cheaper than the cost of a single paper ticket.

Simply touch your go card on at the beginning and touch off at the end of your journey across all TransLink bus, train and ferry services. The correct fare is automatically deducted from your balance.

Concession go cards

Students who attend a university located in Queensland, and are deemed to be 'full-time' by the University may be eligible for concession fares on their go card.

Tertiary Transport Concession Cards are no longer required with students in South East Queensland now being able to apply online for tertiary concession fares on their go card.

To find out more on if you are eligible, please visit the Translink website.

How to top up your go card?
  • Set up auto top-up and the balance of your go card will be automatically topped up to a pre-set amount once it reaches A$5.
