A Geelong-Melbourne ferry service will operate twice every day under a trial given a $6 million boost by the State Government.

The ferry has the capacity to carry up to 400 passengers each way.

Port Phillip Ferries operator and prominent businessman Paul Little told Neil Mitchell there are plans to make the trip faster.

“We’re hopeful we can get the commute time down to 80-90 minutes,” he said.

“We’re hopeful to have the service up and running by February next year.”

Tickets are expected to cost about $36 for a return trip.
