All Public Transport Will Be Free Across Brisbane on New Year's Eve 2021
So you can get to and from your NYE parties without spending a penny.
Finding a designated driver on New Year's Eve is not an easy feat — no one's putting their hand up to find a park near the fireworks, South Bank or anywhere near the city. TransLink understands, and is easing the pain of commuting on the big night (slightly) by offering public transport for free.
On Friday, December 31, all trains, buses, ferries and CityCats will be free from 8pm through until 5.30am on Saturday, January 1. This doesn't apply to the Airtrain or long-distance services, but if you're otherwise travelling within Brisbane, Logan, Ipswich, the Gold Coast and the Sunshine Coast, you're in luck. And, on the Goldie, it includes trams, too.
In Brisbane, as there will most likely be hordes of people flocking to and from the fireworks, there'll also be additional buses and trains around South Bank, and the South Brisbane and Roma Street train stations — with extra buses between 8.40pm–1.40am and trains from 8.30am until early morning.
You can check out a comprehensive rundown of New Year's Eve services at the TransLink website.
