In such circumstances passengers must purchase replacement tickets. If the lost tickets are subsequently found and returned to Customer Care in Gourock then a full refund less an administrative charge will be paid.

Connecting Services

What if my journey is delayed?

Connecting Services

Many journeys involve using more than one mode of transport. Take care when planning your journey – especially if you’re intending to catch the last connecting service of the day. Be realistic about how much time you leave to make connections allowing for unexpected delays.

There can be traffic delays, rail services can be amended at weekends and ferries are often affected by bad weather. Always check for roadworks or possible service disruption before setting off.
