Taking to the water

Being a mobility leader means being responsible for developing agile mobility solutions that respect the environment. We help local authorities integrate the maritime environment into their public transport networks. We have global experience delivering maritime transport in 5 different countries. In Australia, we operate the iconic Sydney Ferries network.




20 years of CityCat

Transdev proudly operated CityCat and CityFerry services on the Brisbane River on behalf of Brisbane City Council from 2003 to 2020.


The first CityCat services were introduced onto the river in 1996. Since then we have helped to grow the ferry network from just 6 catamaran vessels (CityCat)  to 21 in 2019. Several new terminals and routes were introduced during this time, with the service proving popular with residents and visitors alike.

Sydney Ferries

Since 2012, we have been operating ferry services on the iconic Sydney Harbour and along the Parramatta River. Our team of almost 600 staff help to deliver over 170,000 services for Sydneysiders and visitors every year.


We are proud to have won the tender to operate ferries for Sydney until 2028, and will soon be trialling new ‘Ferry on Demand’ services to improve mobility around the city.

Ride with Pride

We are truly part of the communities that we operate in, and our passengers and team members come from a diverse range of backgrounds and ethnicities.


As part of our celebrations of the 2018 Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras we ran the Ride with Pride campaign across all of our modes during February.


The campaign was developed to show that everyone is accepted and should feel safe for being who they are on public transport. And we wanted to display the pride that we have for our LGBTQI passengers, team members and friends.

Our fleet: ferries, shuttles and passenger boats

The variety of our fleet allows us to adapt ourselves to the needs and opportunities of each region:

  • ferries: capable of carrying both passengers and vehicles
  • shuttles: they provide a rapid and efficient transport service for city residents and tourists 
  • passenger boats: true alternatives to cars in harbours, allowing both ends of a bay to be connected more quickly

Providing fleet to meet demand

We can adapt our fleet and configurations so that our services best meet the needs of the public transport authorities and our customers. 

Whether it is providing smaller, faster on-demand shuttle style services or a slower weekend tourist route, Transdev can cater for all sorts of networks and uses.

    Every maritime connection is unique

    Operating in 13 countries, we have an in-depth understanding of each region. Whatever the constraints we encounter, we start from the need for mobility in order to provide the most suitable maritime solution, taking into account:

    • the geographic situation
    • the size of the population
    • the needs of each user

    In this way, we help local authorities choose the best maritime transport solutions.


    We also know how to integrate the proposed maritime solution with the local land transport network.
