Ferry coy about Mornington service


PORT Phillip Ferries last week would not say if it intends to include Mornington in its service to Melbourne.

The company’s Geelong Flyer was seen cruising around Mornington, Friday 16 October, perhaps scoping the pier and harbour for a Mornington Peninsula service. Other seaside havens, such as Rosebud, Rye, Sorrento and Portsea, could also be considered.

A Port Phillip Ferries’ spokesperson last week said its “long-term vision remains unaltered, that is, to introduce safe and reliable ferry travel within Port Phillip Bay and provide a totally relaxing travel experience for those seeking regular commuting and/or leisure travel”.

“We are always looking at new destinations and how locations, such as Mornington, might work with our current schedule,” the spokesperson said.

“Port Phillip Ferries expects to be operating scheduled services between Docklands, Geelong and Portarlington very soon, and will continue to explore further potential new locations for our popular ferries.”
