Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games

The Department of Transport and Main Roads is responsible for planning and delivering the transport operations for the 2018 Gold Coast Commonwealth Games, in partnership with the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games Corporation and the City of Gold Coast.

With thousands of athletes, officials, volunteers, workforce and around 1.2 million ticketed spectators expected to attend events, a successful transport operation is critical to the success of the Games.

Park ‘n’ ride locations

In preparation for the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games (GC2018), the Department of Transport and Main Roads will establish 13 temporary park ‘n’ rides across the Gold Coast, Logan and Brisbane. These park ‘n’ rides will provide parking and transport services for ticketed spectators and accredited workforce travelling to GC2018 venues.

The locations of park ‘n’ ride facilities were chosen to distribute demand across the transport network and maximise the use of existing transport infrastructure.

Of the 13 temporary park ‘n’ rides, 11 have been confirmed with negotiations still underway for another 2 park ‘n’ rides at Chandler and Helensvale.

Where will the park ‘n’ rides be located?

Transport Operations Plan

Delivering transport for the 2018 Gold Coast Commonwealth Games is a significant task and requires careful planning and smart investment. 

The GC2018 Transport Operations Plan sets out how athletes and officials, spectators, workforce and volunteers, and up to 3,500 accredited media can get to their events safely and on time, while keeping the Gold Coast and event cities of Brisbane, Townsville and Cairns moving.

The plan has been jointly developed by the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games Corporation, the Department of Transport and Main Roads and the City of Gold Coast.

The GC2018 transport partners consulted key stakeholders throughout the development of the plan which was released for public comment on 30 November 2016 until 28 February 2017. 

The Transport Operations Plan takes into account forecast travel requirements, the competition program, previous feedback from key industry stakeholders and learnings from major events on the Gold Coast and in other event cities.

Detailed transport operational planning for the Games will continue until April 2018.
