New walking leaflet from Isle of Wight ramblers encourages bus use

The new Isle of Wight ramblers leaflet will encourage walkers to leave their cars at home and use buses instead.

From the Leaflet

Many thanks to David for sharing details of this new leaflet with OnTheWight readers. Ed

Isle of Wight Ramblers has designed a new walking leaflet “Rambles by Bus”.

This is the first in a series of leaflets to encourage more people to walk and to be less reliant on the motor car.

The first walk is “Towering Tennyson”- a walk from Alum Bay visiting the Needles, the Needles batteries and Tennyson Monument.

Where to find it
The leaflet (downloadble below) will be widely available at Southern Vectis terminals, the Ramblers Website and from Summer shows and over 70 Walker Friendly Pubs.

David Howarth, Area Chairman, IW Ramblers, said,

“We are delighted to be working with Southern Vectis to produce these leaflets. They are packed with information and the maps are easy to use. We hope to see more people travelling by bus and enjoying the healthy pursuit of walking on our beautiful Island.”

A few more bus stops along key routes would be handy, e.g. between Niton and Blackgang. The extra bus along the Military Road is welcome but a few more would be handy for gaining access to strategic points for walks.

The buses are great for walks because you can start and stop in different places. The bus service here is good for a mostly rural area, though it’d be nice to have a bus going along the south-west coast as the number 7 used to do. The new bus key is excellent value for all of us who only use the bus once in a while rather… Read more »
