Public transport on the Gold Coast has had a major facelift. The brand new light rail system, fondly named "The G: Link" is now operational. This fast and effective transport system runs from Broadbeach South along the coastline to Main Beach, and through the Broadwater Parklands to the University Hospital. Catching the G is easy and tickets can be purchased at each station. Service is smooth, punctual and very frequent! During the week trams run every 15 minutes from 5am to 7am and then every 7.5minutes from 7am to 7pm. There is even a night service every 15 minutes from 7pm to midnight. Over the weekends trams run 24 hours! A tram runs every 30 minutes from midnight to 5am. There really is no easier way to travel the Gold Coast and the Broadbeach South station is just a few meters walk from Carmel by the Sea. So if you feel like escaping the stress of finding a park, take the G!
