If you are game enough to venture out for New Year’s celebrations, there will be a little relief on the pocket if public transport is your choice of travel.
Free travel and extra services are set to help revellers herald in the new year with public transport the suggested way to get to and from locations to celebrate.
Public transport will be free across SEQ (excluding Airtrain, long distance trains and on demand services) from 8pm on New Year’s Eve until 5.30am on New Year’s Day.
From 8.40pm additional train and bus services will be available for customers travelling to and from the city, South Bank and South Brisbane stations.
Trains will run every 15 minutes or better on most lines after the 8.30pm fireworks and again after midnight.
Brisbane River CityCat and ferry services will run approximately every 15 minutes until about 1am aside from during the fireworks.
G:link tram services will run as normal, with additional services throughout the night to get revellers home safely.
“We want everyone to get home quickly and safely this New Year’s Eve, no matter where you are travelling in the South East,” said Minister for Transport and Main Roads, Bart Mellish.
“Free public transport makes it easier for everyone to enjoy the celebrations and play a part in keeping everyone safe.
“No one tolerates drink driving, so make sure you plan ahead if you are having a few drinks. “Here’s to a happy and safe 2024 on our roads.”
