New CityCat stop at Howard Smith Wharves

CityCat services to Howard Smith Wharves (HSW) began on May 27, allowing locals and visitors to travel from anywhere on the existing CityCat network.

Luke Fraser, CEO of HSW, said: “The river really is one of Brisbane’s superpowers, so showcasing one of our city’s most amazing assets to even more CityCat users is a great idea, and we congratulate the Council on this commitment.”

The HSW ferry terminal was previously serviced by the CityHopper and Cross River Ferry Service, used by approximately 45,000 people each year according to the Brisbane City Council.

Lord Mayor Adrian Schrinner said the service allows people to see the best of Brisbane.

“Howard Smith Wharves is not only one of Brisbane’s most beloved entertainment areas, but directly linked to the iconic Fortitude Valley precinct, so a permanent CityCat stop at the Wharves makes perfect sense,” he said.

Council’s CityHopper service will continue to operate from the terminal with all services moved three minutes to accommodate the new CityCat service.
