Winter timetable starts this weekend

29-10-2009 Red Funnel’s new Winter timetable commences this weekend for both the Vehicle Ferry service and the Red Jet Hi-Speed service.

A separate timetable has also been published for the period between Christmas Eve and New Years Day.

From Saturday 31 October the Vehicle Ferry service will depart every 90 minutes throughout the day from East Cowes and Southampton.

The Red Jet Hi-Speed service between West Cowes and Southampton will also be changing from Saturday to its winter schedule. A half hourly service throughout the day will be retained and there will be an earlier service on Saturdays and Sundays compared to last winter, departing West Cowes at 06:45 am.

Red Funnel’s Red Jet service offers more sailings to the mainland than anyone else, the fastest return route to London in conjunction with South West Trains, and exclusive discounts on day return fares for Island residents.
