As of Sunday 25th March, all Southern Vectis routes will switch to our 2018 Summer Timetable.

As ever, we have endeavoured to make as few changes to timetables as possible, working to add additional buses and times to popular summer routes to ensure regular commuters are not affected during the high season.

All Summer Tables are now online to view HERE.

Our brand new timetable book and seasonal brochures are both now available to pick up from the Travel Shops, ferry ports and all other regular outlets.

If you rely on the bus daily for work and other appointments, we advise reviewing the new timetables in advance to avoid confusion at the time of the change.

Please also note the timetable change coincides with the clocks going forward one hour.

See all changes to the routes below, in effect as of Sunday 25th March 2018:
