From Monday 1 June, you'll be able to travel with your pet dog on Brisbane River ferries, including CityCats.

After the successful trial period, with the majority of the feedback being positive, we're making this initiative permanent on ferry services.

Dogs are allowed to travel between 8.30am - 3.30pm and 7pm - 6am weekdays, and all weekend.

To ensure the safety and comfort of all passengers, we have some requirements (111KB, PDF), including that handlers:

  • ensure their dog is on a lead and wearing a muzzle, or in an enclosed carrier
  • remain outside the ferry cabin and maintain control of their dog
  • carry waste bags and clean up after their dog.

Due to capacity, or other operational reasons, ferry staff may ask you and your dog to wait for another service.
