I looked at the BCC site and I saw this:
CityCats and Council ferries
You can take bikes on all CityCat and Council ferry services (subject to space availability).
Cyclists should take extra care to avoid inconvenience to other passengers.
What does the "subject to space availability" and "to avoid inconvenience to other passengers" mean, exactly? Does it mean that in peak hour, you'll be left behind if it's a near-full ferry, and that non-bike passengers get preference?
I am contemplating riding from Coorparoo to Virginia (home to work), and I need to cross the river. I was planning to either get on at East Brisbane ferry terminal and use a city cat down to Brett's Wharf (in the morning, so opposite to peak hour flow); or use the little cross river ferry that runs from Norman Park to New Farm Park.
Can you take a bike on the really little cross river ferries? If I am travelling against the peak hour flow on a city cat, should I be right for a lift most times?
Am I going to smell too much and not be let on in case I "inconvenience" anyone?
