Have your say!

The Queensland Government is proposing a trial to allow pet dogs to travel on Brisbane River ferry services, including CityCats.

The conditions of the proposed trial would require that dogs:

  • only travel during off-peak times (dogs will not be permitted between 6am – 8.30am and 3.30pm – 7pm Monday to Friday)
  • be in a carrier or on a lead and wearing a muzzle
  • remain under the control of their handler at all times.

We’re seeking feedback from the community and stakeholders, including the ferry operator, to inform further requirements.

Please complete the 'Pet dogs on ferries' survey on the Get Involved website at to have your say on these recommendations, or on any aspect of the proposed trial.

The survey will be open from Friday 30 August until 30 September 2019.
