Brisbane City Council’s ferry terminal upgrade program has committed more than $70 million over the next four years to upgrade existing ferry terminals to improve accessibility for all users. These upgrades ensure everyone can enjoy Council’s CityCat and CityFerry services, including passengers with a disability, their families and carers, older residents, passengers using a mobility device and parents with infants in prams.
These upgrades will make the terminal safer and easier to use for all passengers, including persons with a mobility or vision impairment, by integrating a variety of features to assist with accessibility. Features include easily accessible timetables and help points; braille and tactile signage including tactile ground surface indicators to help provide safe wayfinding; and upgraded lighting that meets current standards. These upgrades will also improve amenity by providing an additional covered waiting area with seating and rest-zones for persons with mobility impairment.
The upgraded terminal will provide safe, equitable and dignified access and circulation for all travellers.
Council is committed to upgrading all ferry terminals to provide improved accessibility for everyone across its public transport network by 2022.
The new CityCat, CityFerry and CityHopper timetables commenced from 24 September 2018. For timetable information or to plan your journey, visit the TransLink website or phone 13 12 30.
