CityCat and ferry services

Brisbane City Council operates a fleet of 20 CityCats and nine monohull CityFerries (including CityHoppers) along a network of 25 terminals stretching from The University of Queensland at St Lucia to Northshore Hamilton.

CityCats operate seven days a week with regular services every 15 minutes for most of the day, and express routes and more frequent services during peak times. Further information about ferry services, including timetables, can be found on the TransLink website.
