The NSW Government will deliver a ferry service for commuters between Parramatta and the CBD.
From the Minister's Press Release (click here for the full release):
An Expression of Interest process did not identify a proposal from the private sector to meet the Government and commuter’s needs, so the NSW Government has stepped in to deliver the service.
"This means people living and working in Parramatta will be able to catch a ferry directly to the city during peak hour," Mr Rees said.
"It will be an hourly service operating from 7am to 7pm weekdays and 8am to 6pm on weekends.
"The Ministry of Transport and Sydney Ferries are working closely together and I expect to see the new commuter ferry service between Parramatta and the CBD in operation for passengers by the end of the year."
