Plans to permanently remove the Renfrew Ferry will be discussed at a forthcoming budget meeting of Strathclyde Passenger Transport on 22nd Jan. 2010. If you oppose permanent closure of this historic ferry link please sign the petition below and email this link to others so they can also add their opposition to the closure plans.

You can leave your view on the closure in the comments box, or let us know about your use and memories of the ferry.

UPDATE at 22/01/10: SPT today confirmed their plans to close the Renfrew Ferry service from April. This is very disappointing and a slap in the face to everyone who campaigned to keep the Ferry link. But please still consider signing here and adding your voice as I am calling on Scotland's Transport Minister to step in to assist to continue this river crossing. The Scottish Government saved £175m when they axed the Glasgow Airport Rail Link recently. Only the tiniest fraction of that would cover the Ferry losses of £400k a year and keep the Ferry open. It may also encourage a private operator to take up the service.
