Brisbane City Council has announced a new vessel, CityCat 22, which will join Council’s existing fleet of CityCats. CityCat 22 represents the evolution of river travel and enhances the passenger experience.
Project timing: The contract to build CityCat 22 has been awarded and construction is expected to be complete late 2019.
The following are features of the new CityCat 22 vessel:
- the vessel will be able to carry a total of 170 passengers
- an upper deck, providing seating for 16 passengers. The upper deck will be accessible via rear stairs
- rear deck seating for 16 passengers and space for up to six bikes
- an open front deck with a clear viewing pane below the handrail
- up to 6 dedicated wheelchair and mobility scooter areas will be available, subject to final design
- lower windows in sections of the main cabin, allowing passengers in mobility devices and children to enjoy the view
- table and lounge seating options including USB device charging ports
- hearing augmentation loops.
The new CityCat will operate under the existing contract with Transdev Brisbane Ferries. Once launched into the fleet, CityCat 22 will operate along the length of the CityCat network allowing passengers from across the city to experience this iconic new vessel.
