Good News For Hayling Festival Goers

Published: 25th August 2016 13:30
 Hayling Ferry A free shuttle bus service will be operating on Saturday 27 and Sunday 28 August to connect Victorious Festival-goers travelling on the newly re-instated Hayling Ferry with the main bus network.

This special one-off service was the idea of Councillor Jim Fleming, Cabinet Member for Traffic & Transportation at Portsmouth City Council, who wanted to make it easier for ferry customers to travel to the festival.

He said: "The Victorious Festival typically attracts over 100,000 people and many travel from outside of the city. To help make the Hayling Ferry a viable travel option for people travelling from the island we are providing a free shuttle bus to connect them with the commercial bus network."

A 16 seater mini bus will operate a shuttle service between the ferry terminal and Eastney Road (Bransbury Park) every 20 minutes from 9.00am. Passengers can choose to walk or catch the number 1 First bus to the festival site.

The return shuttle buses will operate every twenty minutes from Bransbury Park until the number 1 bus stops running. It will then collect passengers directly from number 1 stop at Southsea shops departing every 20 minutes from 11.20pm on Saturday and 8.20pm on Sunday until 11.40pm.

Passengers are advised to leave plenty of time as it will be operated on a first come, first served basis and only 16 passengers will be able to board the final bus. The shuttle bus is free of charge but passengers must show a valid Hayling Ferry ticket.

Clare Satchwell, co-founder of the Hayling Ferry Trust, said: "It's brilliant that Portsmouth City Council have stepped in to close the final link to help our passengers to travel to and from the Victorious Festival by public transport. We look forward to a busy weekend on the ferry."
