WHAT’S G:OING ON?

Gold Coast Marathon 2024

If you are planning to Ride the G: to the Gold Coast Marathon, there will be changes to tram services. We will be running extra early morning services on Saturday 6 July and Sunday 7 July to help get you there. Due to the increase in marathon runners, on Sunday 7 July tram services between Cavill Avenue and Broadbeach South stations will stop between 6am – 8am to allow runners to safely cross our tracks. During this time buses will replace trams, so we will still G:et you where you need to go. Trams will continue to operate between Cavill Avenue and Helensvale stations.
