Service operating status
There are lots of ways you can keep up-to-date with the very latest service operating information from Red Funnel. We use a traffic light scheme [green|amber|red] to indicate the current service status.
The status is published on Red Funnel's main website, our mobile optimised website and on tv screens across all our terminals and even on screens belonging to our travel partners like Southampton Airport.
