Trial to better connect tourists

TOURISTS will become better connected with south-east Queensland's public transport network if a new trial is successful.

Up to 15 Brisbane hotels will make go cards and transport visitor information packs available from their hotel's front-desk or reception.

Previously the go card has been sold at transport hubs, newsagents and retailers such as 7-Eleven, but from this week they will be available at major hotel chains.

Transport Minister Scott Emerson said Rydges Southbank, Stamford Plaza, Novotel, Mercure, Ibis and Emporium Hotel Brisbane would be included in the initial trial.

"There are 12.3 million domestic and international tourists who visit south-east Queensland each year and now they will have greater access to incentives such as the LNP's free travel after nine journeys," he said.
