Ryde is a beautiful seaside town on the north-east coast of the Island.
There are Island Line trains running directly to and from our Ryde Pier Head Port. This is our quickest crossing for foot passengers, with a journey time of 22 minutes. Our FastCats Wight Ryder I and Wight Ryder II operate on this route.
Ryde Pier barrier and toll
The Ryde Pier Toll has ended and the barrier on the pier is no longer in use. We have changed the way we finance the maintenance and refurbishment of the pier as a result of customer feedback and to reduce traffic congestion.
Instead of a £1.30 Pier Toll there is now a supplement of 50p to the price of individual FastCat journeys. Multilink, Season Ticket and Business Pass holders are not affected.
Fishing on Ryde Pier
Ryde Pier is a great place to spend a few hours fishing.
You can now buy your daily and annual fishing permit directly from the car park machines on the Pier – just use the yellow button to find the option you want, then the green button to find out the price and make payment.
Wightlink staff and the parking patrol officers will ask to see your permit when they’re on their rounds.
Please fish responsibly and don’t leave any litter behind when you go home.
