The Airtrain leaves every 15 minutes during peak hours and runs from 5:04 a.m. to 10:04 p.m. every day.

Another affordable way to get to the airport is with TransLink. The public bus service connects passengers to Brisbane Airport with routes 369 and 590.

If you want to avoid paying for parking at the airport, you can catch a taxi or a ridesharing service to the airport. Passengers will be dropped off at the Domestic Terminal with fares costing around AUD 33-42 one-way.
