Access Council's transport service for $2 each way

A great service is available for residents aged 60-and-over with disability or mobility impairment. The Council Link transport service through ComLink is funded through Council’s Transport Levy.  The service collects eligible residents from their home and drives them to their local shopping centre and return, for $2 each way.

For residents in Beerwah, Glasshouse Mountains and Peachester, the service operates to Beerwah Marketplace on Tuesdays. To book the service, phone 5390 1288 by noon on Mondays.

Further details about the schedule and other suburbs are available at, just search for “council link”.


Light rail proposed routes on display

Light rail route options through Kawana, Mooloolaba, Maroochydore and Caloundra are now available for public consideration.

I am really enthusiastic about the potential benefits of light rail and encourage residents to attend a community information session to learn more about the initial feasibility study findings as well as the route options. Light rail is suggested as one component of an integrated transport strategy for the region that can also help deliver greater benefits to residents in the Hinterland. So don’t miss this opportunity to have a say about the Sunshine Coast’s future—provide your thoughts and comments either in person, by mail or online at
