Moving to a new city can bring with it lots of challenges. One thing that can make the adjustment feel a little overwhelming is trying to navigate the city streets.

If you're about to relocate to Brisbane, now's a good time to get your head around the transport options available.

Firstly, settle into your new abode. If you're looking for long term accommodation in Brisbane, Live@Mantra is hard to beat. Mantra on Queen is just minutes away from the CBD and has a range of restaurants, shops and cafes within arm's reach. Choose a one or two bedroom apartment and enjoy the outdoor swimming pool, sauna, spa and gym onsite.

From here you can walk around the city, but when you want to venture further out you'll be spoilt for choice when it comes to public transport.


"For a new perspective on the city, hop on a free city loop bus to take in the sights. For regular commuters, take a BUZ (Bus Upgrade Zone) service across the city. These are special high frequency buses that run every 10-15 minutes between 6am and 11.30pm.


Brisbane City Council operates a range of travel services, including one of the largest bus fleets in Australia, plus the CityCat and CityFerry network.

CityCats, City Hoppers and Cross River Ferries travel the Brisbane River and terminals are located between St Lucia and Hamilton. They're a great way to quickly get across the river, and up to date information regarding scheduling can be found on the TransLink website.

Lovers of the outdoors and fresh air may want to hire a CityCycle bike to roam the city at leisure. The program aims to encourage active and sustainable public transport, helping to reduce traffic congestion and parking pressures in Brisbane.
