Festival 2018 – Shuttle Bus Times and Fares


Whether you’re coming to enjoy the whole weekend, or even just for the day, Southern Vectis have got your Isle of Wight Festival travel needs sorted!

With handy shuttle buses leaving from all of the ports, it couldn’t be easier to get to the main event. If travelling from Yarmouth, please use network route 7 to Newport bus station, and change to the festival shuttle bus. From Newport we have a regular shuttle bus service direct to the site and back again. Perfect for when you need to top up your festival supplies over the weekend.

The Islands’s only bus operator has a special Weekender ticket priced at just £30, valid Thursday to Monday. This can be purchased in advance one week before on their mobile app (just search for clickit2ride in the app store) or from a Southern Vectis travel shops.

The ticket will be available to use on all of the regular Southern Vectis service buses, as well as the special Festival buses.

Forgot to book in advance? No worries as you can just buy your weekend bus ticket when you turn up! Rover, Freedom and concessionary passes are not valid for use on the festival shuttles. If you wish to travel on numerous occasions on both regular buses and the shuttles, please buy the special Weekender ticket.
