Until late May, there'll be changes to some services travelling through Parkwood due to roadworks associated with the Gold Coast Light Rail Stage 2 project.

During the following times, if you usually catch the bus to/from any of the affected stops in this area, you can catch a dedicated shuttle bus to connect with the Gold Coast University Hospital.


Route 710

Buses will be diverted from 7.45pm to the last service, Monday to Thursday evenings from 13 March to 13 April.

There will also be changes to the 710 from 7.45pm on Friday 21 April to the last service on Sunday 23 April, and from 7.45pm on Friday 5 May to last service on Sunday 7 May.

During these times, a shuttle bus will replace regular buses on stops through Parkwood, running every 30 minutes.

If you catch the 710 to Helensvale Station during these times, you will be able to connect from the shuttle bus to the regular bus at Arundel Primary School stop, on Napper Rd. (see map below)
