The changes reflect the needs of island communities following a period of recent consultation with island residents and key ferry users.

Ryan Thomson, Chair of the Council’s Environment and Transport Committee, and ZetTrans, said: “Council staff have engaged positively with communities to find solutions for the essential travel requirements of islanders and key workers. In recent days, there’s been a high take up of account cards and online bookings for those who need to travel during the coronavirus pandemic. I’d like to thank island residents, ferry users and Council staff for their help in making these changes and adapting so quickly.”
