Calls for Improvement for Sydney Ferries

Wednesday, February 15, 2006
The State Government has ordered Sydney Ferries to come up with a way to lift its performance by next week, saying too many vessels were out of service. According to The Sydney Morning Herald, at least 80 percent of ferries were supposed to be available, but the rate over the past two months has been 77 per cent - too low to ensure ferry services run on time. The Herald revealed that half of Sydney's most modern ferries, including most of the RiverCats, were lying idle at the Balmain maintenance depot. The ferries' 80 per cent availability requirement is not as high as that for State Transit, which needs to have at least 90 percent of its bus fleet on the road at morning peak hour.
