Manly Ferry Services

Manly ferry services connect the Sydney suburb of Manly with Circular Quay in the CBD by commuter ferry. The services are provided by Sydney Ferries Corporation, an agency of the Government of New South Wales. The route is coloured light blue on the current Sydney Ferries network map. Vessels in the Freshwater class generally operate these services. The Sydney Ferries JetCat, a high speed catamaran service, was discontinued on 31 December 2008 and replaced with a privately owned service operated by Manly Fast Ferries. In March 2010, the government announced that that Manly Fast Ferries contract had not been renewed and had been replaced by another private operator Sydney Fast Ferries. The two operators are now competing side by side, with Manly Fast Ferries docking at the nearby Manly Hotel Wharf.

Famous quotes containing the words services, manly and/or ferry:

    Those services which the community will most readily pay for, it is most disagreeable to render.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    The sea—this truth must be confessed—has no generosity. No display of manly qualities—courage, hardihood, endurance, faithfulness—has ever been known to touch its irresponsible consciousness of power.
    Joseph Conrad (1857–1924)

    This ferry was as busy as a beaver dam, and all the world seemed anxious to get across the Merrimack River at this particular point, waiting to get set over,—children with their two cents done up in paper, jail-birds broke lose and constable with warrant, travelers from distant lands to distant lands, men and women to whom the Merrimack River was a bar.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
