GETTING AROUND

APAM Transfers

For all registered delegates, APAM provides transport to all venues for the Official Program of Showcases and Pitches. Each day, buses will depart from Sofitel Brisbane Central and will transport delegates to the various performance venues throughout the day. At the end of the Official Program each evening buses will depart from Brisbane Powerhouse to Sofitel Brisbane Central.

A timetable will be available on the APAM mobile app, on this page closer to February and at information desks during the event.

Bikes – CityCycle

Make the most of Brisbane’s wonderful outdoor climate by biking around town. There are extensive bicycle paths running throughout the city and peddle-power offers a healthy and inexpensive way of getting around. Hire a CityCycle bike at inner city stations and set off to explore or even to cycle between APAM performances venues along the Brisbane River bikes paths.

A casual pass is the best way to enjoy the CityCycle network and can be purchased online.

Taxis

Take a taxi and be there in a flash. Taxi ranks are available at the Brisbane international and domestic airports, as well as throughout the city and inner-city precincts. Jump in a taxi to be assured of a quick and efficient way of getting around. A standard taxi will cater for four passengers or less. For wheel-chair access or to transport five to 10 passengers, it’s best to order a Multi Passenger taxi.

Ferries

Let the river be your guide. Brisbane’s ferries, affectionately known as CityCats, are one of the most enjoyable ways to explore Brisbane. Glide along the river with CityCat and CityFerry services, perfect for sight-seeing and accessing key city spots. Tickets can be bought on board the services, at most newsagents and at selected retail outlets, or make use of a Go Card. Hop on board the free CityHopper ferry service to get around inner-city precincts for free.

Free Transport

The CityLoop and Spring Hill Loop bus services circle the city every 10 minutes and stop at destinations in the CBD and Spring Hill precincts 7am – 6pm weekdays. Glide between Brisbane’s inner-city precincts by hopping on the free CityHopper ferry service, which travels along the river from North Quay to Sydney St, New Farm.
