What are Flexilink services?

Flexilink provides cheap, safe, reliable and accessible public transport to people with fewer transport options. The services:

  • operate on a pre-booked basis
  • run three return trips per day, Monday to Saturday
  • in most cases, connect with existing public transport services for onward journeys
  • travel along a chosen route (people using the Flexilink service must meet the vehicle along this route)
  • use a taxi in place of a bus.

The Flexilink trial services are funded by council's Transport Levy.

The services reduce the need for single passenger car use. More public transport options available on the Sunshine Coast mean less people need to use their cars. This helps council work towards a sustainable environment.
