Hovertravel boosts services at morning peak commuter times

From 1 March, Hovertravel will be adding services to its early morning timetable, giving cross-Solent passengers extra sailings when most needed.

New services will be running at 0630 and 0700 from Ryde and 0645 and 0715 from Southsea on every weekday, excluding Bank Holidays.

Hovertravel has added 20 crossings to its weekday timetable since December 2017

Hovertravel managing director Neil Chapman explains: “At the end of last year we added extra morning services in to our timetable for Mondays only, and now we are adding these services to every weekday.

“We have the flexibility in our operation to react quickly when we see opportunities and listening to our customers helped us identify how we could enhance our timetable.”

Hovertravel has added 20 crossings to its weekday timetable since December 2017 as a result of feedback from commuters, school children and their parents.

With journey time of just 17 minutes from Ryde to the centre of Portsmouth (10 minutes on the hovercraft and 7 minutes on the HoverBus), Hovertravel is the fastest and most frequent cross-Solent service.

Chapman adds: “Our popular 15-minute timetable for peak commuter times has evolved and now represents the best possible connection from the island to mainland and beyond.”
