Double-decker CityCat - CityCat 22

Brisbane City Council has launched a new vessel, a double-decker CityCat, ("Yoogera" which translates to 'Breakfast Creek at mouth'), which will join Council’s existing fleet of CityCats. This means more opportunities to connect with the people and places that make our city great.

Yoogera represents the evolution of river travel and enhances the passenger experience.

This is all part of our plan to deliver a modern public transport network with a further six NextGen double-decker CityCats joining the fleet over the next four years.

We are excited to advise that Yoogera commenced service on Tuesday 26 November 2019.

Brisbane just keeps getting better. The new double-decker CityCat, Yoogera, is here.
