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, more than a million people a month travel using our ferry networks in Brisbane and Sydney.
20 years of CityCat
Transdev has proudly been operating CityCat and CityFerry services on the Brisbane River on behalf of Brisbane City Council since 2003.
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, with a new double-decker CityCat soon to be launched.
Several new terminals and routes have been introduced during this time, with the service proving popular with residents and visitors alike.
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.
Transport hire for any occasion
The best events begin and end with well planned transport.
Whether you are organising a sporting event, school excursion, tour group or special occasion, our bus and ferry charters ensure your guests travel safely and have a seamless journey.
Transdev have been proudly operating Brisbane Ferries since 2003 on behalf of our mobility partner. Our team is made up of 220 dedicated crew who provide residents and visitors with an efficient, reliable and friendly form of transport.
We know Brisbane River better than anyone, with one of our crew-members ‘Harry’ a master on the river for more than 40 years and still driving our CityFerry services.
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.

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

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.
