Getting Around Brisbane
ACCCO is centrally located near business and lifestyle precincts with nearby transport networks and opportunities for part-time work whilst studying.
Brisbane’s public transport network is clean and green with an intergrated network of trains, ferries and
buses which make for a hassel-free commute to your class. The cheapest way to travel by public transport is to buy a Gocard. TransLink,
Brisbane’s integrated ticketing system, provides students with the flexibility to travel on train, bus and ferry services using just the
one card. You can add credit to these cards and then you don’t have to worry about not having enough cash to catch public transport. You
can add extra credit online or through a retail outlet. Just remember to always tap on and tap off or you will be charged extra.
Brisbane students receive a 50% discount on local public transport and 25% discount on CityCycle bike hire. There’s also a free CityHopper ferry to jump between the city, South Bank and Kangaroo Point.
