NextGen double-decker CityCats

Brisbane City Council launched the first new Next Generation (NextGen) double-decker CityCat vessel Yoogera in November 2019 and the second, Neville Bonner, in August 2020 providing more opportunities to connect the people and places that make our city great.

Council is delivering seven more NextGen double-decker CityCats to complement and replace seven of the existing vessels nearing the end of their serviceable lifespan.

This is all part of our plan to deliver a modern public transport network that represents the evolution of river travel and enhances the passenger experience.
