FERRY PASSENGERS FOR A FAIR DEAL We, a large group of ferry passengers, are petitioning to request an independent, government-sponsored investigation into the cost of travel and carriage to and from the Isle of Wight. WHY Red Jet season ticket prices are increasing year on year at 2-3 times the rate of inflation. There is no government regulation of ferry costs and passengers are vulnerable to further rises imposed. Since 2004, the cost of a season ticket has increased more that 30%. Islanders, particularly those travelling on foot, have no alternatives and are at the mercy of the unregulated ferry operators for getting off the island. In addition, parallel increases in the cost of transport of freight and goods across the Solent can push up the cost of living on the island.

Your details will not be passed on to anyone but the Competition Commission (a non-political branch of her Majesty\'s Government that investigates potential monopolies). Please tell us of any experiences (good or bad) that you have had with the ferry operators (e.g. customer service, level of operation, cost etc) on the comments fields. Your comments will be sent to the Office of Fair Trading and the House of Commons Select Committee on Transport.
