Virgin Gorda Transport, which does business as Speedy’s Ferry announced on 21 March that there are plans to discontinue its late nightWednesday Service.
The Company explained that the termination of the late night service on Wednesday is targeted to commence from May 2016.
The late ferry on Wednesday usually leaves Virgin Gorda for Road Town at 10:30pm, and departs Road Town at 11:00pm.
Speedy’s sources stressed that it is only discontinuing its Wednesday service, and that other late services remain the same.
Meanwhile the public is encouraged to enjoy the late Wednesday trips until 27 April, and remember that 4 May will be the stop date.
“Our Beef Island late night service won’t be affected…Our sincere apologies for any inconvenience caused,” the company announced.
Speedy’s is one of the main connectors between Tortola and the sister island Virgin Gorda. The company began many years ago with its first ferry, ‘Adventure’. Now newer, bigger ferries have joined the fleet ensuring a comfortable and reliable inter island scheduled service.
”Over the years the ferry company has offered a weekly shopping trip to St. Thomas, acted as a ‘Water Ambulance’, and performed Coast Guard rescues,” the company said.
