We report on the piezoelectric excitation and acoustic charge transport by gigahertz surface acoustic waves (SAWs) in epitaxial monolayer graphene (EG) on SiC. The GHz SAWs frequencies were generated by interdigital transducers fabricated on a piezoelectric island on the SiC substrate. Acoustic transport studies in a Hall bar geometry show that the propagating SAW field transports carriers in EG, the transport direction being determined by the direction of the acoustic beam. Carrier transport is driven by drift in the piezoelectric field induced by the SAW in EG.
