One of the best ways to make our city more liveable and sustainable is by building a world-class public transport system.
In 2015, we presented a vision for a new inner west ferry network to make trips into the city quicker and easier. Since then we've been working with the community to get it done.
I'm delighted to announce that in October a new ferry service to Glebe will finally be launched!
Thank you to the 4,149 residents who signed our petition or wrote to the Minister in support of this campaign! Your support has sent a powerful message that our community wants more public transport solutions that actually take cars off the road.
The Glebe ferry will be launched as an 'on-demand' service, for a six month trail from October. This means we need to get out and use this service if we want to keep it.
While this is great news for our community, I believe our new Glebe ferry should be permanent, Opal compatible and service a wider network.
