    Public transport to get fans to Taylor Swift in Style

    One of the world’s biggest pop stars is coming to Brisbane and it’s TransLink’s End Game to offer convenient public transport options.

    As was the case when Adele said Hello to Brisbane, TransLink will ensure concert-goers can get to and from Taylor Swift’s Gabba gig on November 6 in an easy manner with extra bus and rail services.

    Transport and Main Roads Minister Mark Bailey said public transport has proven to be the best option for travel to and from concerts.

    “Brisbane has played host to some major concerts in the past two years with the likes of Adele, Paul McCartney and the Foo Fighters gracing the stage at The Gabba or Suncorp Stadium,” he said.

    “Public transport to and from The Gabba for Adele’s two concerts proved a major success with concert goers enjoying quick and convenient travel and for Taylor Swift public transport will again be the best way for fans to enjoy the experience.”

     Concert-goers will be able to catch shuttle bus services from the city from 4.30-8.30pm and from Carindale, Eight Mile Plains and Chermside from 4.30-8.10pm.

    Return shuttle bus services will run from The Gabba for about one hour after the concert.

    Bus services will link with 17 extra trains running from Central Station after the concert to help fans get home safely and quickly.

    Extra post-event rail services from Central Station will include two trains travelling to each of Caboolture, Kippa Ring, Springfield, Ipswich, Beenleigh and Varsity Lakes, Ferny Grove and Shorncliffe. 

    There will be one additional train service to Cleveland after the concert, leaving at 12.09am from Central, prior to the commencement of late-night track works.

    To plan your Taylor Swift concert travel on the TransLink network, check the journey planner on the TransLink website at: www.translink.com.au or call 13 12 30, anytime.
