Wakatipu Ferry Services

What's the project?

This work investigates the use of Lake Wakatipu as a public transport option.  

Progress so far

We are another step closer to potentially having  a long-term subsidised water ferry in Queenstown.

The Otago Regional Council is looking to amend its regional plan to enable a ferry to be added to the public transport network in the Wakatipu. Contingent on planning and funding support, they would look to launch this in 2021.

In the meantime, it will work with  the existing commercial ferry service.
