Community Bus Service

The Southern Vectis Route 33 bus, the Route 34/34A Community Bus Service (together with others around the Island) ended on 4 September 2015, due to IOW Council funding cuts. As a consequence, Havenstreet no longer has a Southern Vectis bus services.

The Parish Council is working with partners to try to establish an alternative bus service, although this may take some time. In the meantime the Parish Council is funding Haven Taxis to run a community taxi service, which runs into Ryde town and back on Friday mornings, and to Newport on Tuesdays. Passengers are asked to make a donation of £2 per return journey for this service. Please contact Cllr Sue Lyons for further details or to reserve a seat – 882516.
