Active travel

We encourage Gold Coast residents and visitors to choose more sustainable methods of travel.

See the links below for tips and tools to help make active travel your new normal.

Walking while shopping

Walking

Walking is free, healthy and an accessible alternative to using a car. A walk to the shops, school or work improves your fitness and reduces stress.

Cycling is a great way to get around the Gold Coast. It saves you money, keeps you fit, is good for the environment and reduces congestion.

Post COVID-19

During COVID-19, we’ve seen a huge increase in people walking and cycling across the city and we want to help you keep up these healthy habits.

There are more than 2400 kilometres of bikeways and pathways on the Gold Coast linking neighbourhoods, schools, foreshores, parks and major transit routes and the City is continuing to build more paths and invest in active travel infrastructure.

Whether it’s your commute to school, work, or a weekend outing with friends, we want to help you make active travel your new normal.
