Kudos to S.V.they are the only transport company to have kept up services during this pandemic….
Well done!

Sally Perry

Before Island Line closed for track works, they were running all throughout the pandemic.

Hovertravel has continued to run throughout the pandemic and as well as taking the FastCat’s customers, has won an award for its Island Rescue service – which transfers patients from the Isle of Wight to the mainland.

Albeit with reduced crossings, Wightlink and Red Funnel have also continued to run throughout the pandemic.


Yes,I know Sally,but none of the others go to St.Marys and Wightlink bottled out at the first opportunity and I think Island Line are behind on their works.
Hovertravel are OK but if the winds strong they drop the handle and the transfer time to Pompey adds time to the journey,as I’m sure you know.


So like many other times, the FastCat is the worst for fares, journeys and just not being there. Thank you Wightlink for making life even more difficult.


It is a shame that they can’t update their drivers – the majority of which are among the most miserable people on the face of the earth (yes, even before the pandemic).


There are a few miserable drivers on S.V. but on the whole they are cheerful and helpful in my experience. It cannot be an easy job especially on our roads, and no doubt grumpy passengers too!
