Brisbane City Cats have On-board and Overboard Incidents

An alarming number of incidents have occurred on-board and overboard on our Brisbane City Cats.

Documents obtained through ‘Right to Information’ legislation show staff have complained about their safety while working on the City Cats.

On one occasion, the ‘Baneraba’ was badly damaged after it lost power and collided with the Apollo Road terminal at Bulimba.

There have also been damage to passengers’ property and isolated instances of drunken passengers.

Brisbane Lord Mayor Graham Quirk said council was committed to improving the safety for both customers and crew. “The safety of passengers on city cats is a paramount,” he said. “There’s a constant retraining of city cat masters and the staff on board.”
