Extra Saturday sailing as Hovertravel’s winter timetable kicks off

Hovertravel's new Isle of Wight winter timetable kicks off tomorrow (1 November), featuring an extra service on Saturday afternoon for customers looking to go shopping or an early start to their Saturday night out.

The extra departure will be at 1445 on Saturdays. Printed timetables can be collected from both Ryde and Southsea terminals.

Loretta Lale, head of commercial, says: “Last winter we carefully monitored every service to see how busy they were, and we listened to all the feedback we received from our customers.

“For 2017/18 winter season, we only needed to introduce one additional Saturday service to ensure our winter service provides a frequent service at the most popular times.

“Our supervisors at both Ryde and Southsea can run extra services on the day if there is sufficient demand.”

As in previous winters, during the week, Hovertravel will operate an hourly service after the commuter morning peak, from the 0915 Ryde departure until the 1315 Ryde departure. There will then be a 1345 departure from Ryde, to help customers who wish to leave or return in the middle of a weekday.

The service is then hourly until the commuter evening peak starts with the 1545 Ryde departure. The 15-minute frequency during both the morning and evening commuter peaks remains.
