One of the reasons I love living in Brisbane is that it has a fantastic transportation system. The commuter rail takes me to the Rotary meetings in Brisbane’s distant suburbs. The ferry service glides me down the Brisbane River to the South Bank Parklands. The pedestrian mall and bicycle/pedestrian-only bridges makes downtown an enjoyable shopping destination. Buses zip me to West End and New Farm on rainy days. The bicycle network gives me a reason to get excited about my commute every day.
