Ferry

The data featured here are mainly from Harbour City Ferries (formerly Sydney Ferries). We have also added statistics and publications about ferry usage from other BTS collections such as the Household Travel Survey.

Harbour City Ferries compiles data on patronage and ticket validations. The Ferry Load Census data are now available and are provided by wharf and route. These are based on a week-long census of ferry services conducted in May and November of each year. Users should note that these two periods do not represent the lowest and highest figures, which are known to occur in June and December.

Ferry Patronage data, estimated from both the Ferry Load Census and Ticket Validations data are now available.
