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 have increased 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 than 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 up the cost of living on the island.

Is there a cause you really care about? Start a free petition like this one and make a real difference.
