Have you and your dog taken the trip across the river? No, you say? Don't worry you still have time!

TransLink, in association with Brisbane City Council and the ferry operator Transdev have been conducting a trial which allows pet dogs to travel on Brisbane river ferries and CityCats between Monday 9th December, 2019 and Sunday 8th March, 2020.

There are up to 105,089 dogs registered with the Brisbane city council and its only growing. These days owners are taking their dogs pet friendly markets and the ever growing pet cafes. So why not let pets on the ferries and CityCats? We think its a great idea, and hope it continues!

If you do decide to travel there are some rules. To ensure the safety and comfort of all passengers:

  • 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.

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

Have your say before it ends....

The Brisbane city council is seeking feedback from customers who have been on board the ferry or CityCat services or around people and their pets. This survey closes at midnight, Saturday 16th February. However dogs can still travel until Sunday 8th of March.

For more information on the trial, visit or call 13 12 30 anytime.
