Fans travelling to Wednesday nights (18 April) One Direction concert at the Brisbane Convention Centre have one thing less to scream about with trains, buses and ferries regularly servicing stops near the venue.
TransLink CEO Neil Scales said the Brisbane Convention Centre's central location meant there were many public transport options nearby.
"The Convention Centre is only a short walk from South Bank train station and Cultural Centre busway station," Mr Scales said.
"Those travelling by CityCat or ferry can walk from the South Bank ferry terminals through South Bank Parklands to the Glenelg and Merivale Street entrance just off Little Stanley Street.
"Public transport means that fans can avoid the peak hour traffic and make it to the Convention Centre for when the doors open at 6.30pm."
Mr Scales said fans intending on staying up all night should plan ahead and find out when their last service is due to leave Brisbane City.
"I’d encourage customers to plan their journey before they leave home, so that they are not stuck in the city late at night," Mr Scales said.
"Normal fares and travel conditions apply for the event and customers should also make sure that they have valid student/concession identification and sufficient credit on their go cards before travelling.
"Customers can make sure that they are never caught short and always have enough credit on their go cards by registering for auto top-up on the TransLink website.
"With auto top-up, their go card is automatically topped up once it falls below a pre-set threshold."
