How to get from the airport to the city centre?

Brisbane International Airport is only 15km away from the centre so it can be relatively easy to find your way there. One of the most common methods of travel is to jump on the Airtrain Rail Link. The train runs every 15 minutes and takes 20 minutes to arrive in downtown Brisbane. It runs every day and kids can travel for free. Adults can expect a fare of about A$15 each way. For one extra dollar you could opt for the bus. Coachtrans Australia meets all flights, whether domestic or international, and the extra dollar means you get a door-to-door service. This can be very appreciated after your long flights to Brisbane and you just want to crash at your hotel rather than find your way from the train station. Lastly you could decide on a taxi. While these aren’t the cheapest option they are rather handy due to being readily available and taking you exactly where you need to go. Fees are higher for late-night journeys so bare that in mind.
