Taxi from Brisbane airport into the city

Can anyone give me approximations for (a) the time and (b) the fare for a taxi from BNE to the area near Fortitude Valley station? In regard to traffic, this would be early afternoon on a Saturday.

TIA

Fare estimate
Passengers can expect to pay $45 - $55 (one way for a trip from the airport to Brisbane City). Outside of peak periods, it is approximately a 20 minute drive from the airport to the city.

Going further than the city? Use Yellow Cabs advanced fare estimator to calculate a fare.
And
https://www.taxifare.com.au/rates/australia/brisbane [BNE Fortitude Valley Station]
Estimated Fare $43.67 to $61.14
Distance 18.14 KM
Duration 21.60 mins

Also the train https://www.airtrain.com.au/

On a Saturday traffic would be OK

Thanks for the links, Mwenenzi. I did check the train, which I would prefer -- but it's only twice per hour; IF my flight arrives on schedule, the Gold line should get me to my appointment in town on-time. If the flight is late, however, I think I'll need to take a cab. (I'm cutting it much closer than I normally like to do but incoming flight options were limited.)
