Wightlink User Group Hustings

Isle of Wight Hustings

Hustings were held on Wednesday 12th June in Ryde and Thursday 13th June in Freshwater.

We Demand Better

Community Led

The Wightlink User Group is an independent organisation advocating for improved cross-Solent ferry services that better meet the needs of commuters and travellers. We are committed to ensuring fair and equal access to transportation across the Solent

The Beginning

We came together in response to Wightlink’s failure to reinstate a full and reliable foot passenger service following the lockdown. We established a Facebook group to gauge public interest which has grown to more than a thousand members in just 2 months.

Join Us

We promise to work with Wightlink and others on your behalf to get us all a better deal for this absolutely essential service link to the mainland.

We are marooned without it!

Our Goals

A Regular Service

Island residents are not seasonal. We call for an all-year-round, all-day and evening ferry service in Yarmouth and on the Ryde Fastcat, to better serve the needs of residents who rely on cross-Solent travel for daily commute and other activities

Affordable For All

We urge for discounts on individual crossings as well as multi-link passes for residents, to make cross-Solent travel more accessible and affordable for those who depend on the service for daily commute and travel needs.

Dedicated NHS Support

Many island residents require medical care outside of the island. We call for dedicated phone lines, bookings and parking for those most vulnerable.
