CityCat and ferry service social distancing measures to remain

Brisbane City Council wishes to advise that RiverCity Ferries, the operator of Brisbane ferry services, will maintain additional coronavirus social distancing measures throughout the State Government’s phased approach to relaxing restrictions.

These measures include:

  • the introduction of ‘staff only’ areas on vessels 
  • additional signage and messaging onboard to encourage safe travelling practices
  • limiting passenger numbers on a service if passenger volumes are such that they are considered a transmission safety issue.

Passengers are encouraged to continue to practise safe hygiene when travelling on any Brisbane public transport, such as social distancing and washing and/or sanitising hands.

Brisbane City Council is working closely with the Australian Government and Queensland Health and is following their expert health advice to help minimise the transmission of coronavirus. 

As updates are available, they will be included on Council’s website. For more information visit or phone Council on (07) 3403 8888.
