Thames Clippers Get Us Home

Thames Clippers have completely cut the evening service, last boat leaving Embankment at 21:10. For me this is an inconvenience as it means if I want to go out for dinner or see a show after work I will have to pay extra for alternative transport home on top of my Annual Season Ticket for the boat. For one of my neighbours who is also a Season ticket holder but works afternoon/evening it means he is regretably considering cancelling his Thames Clipper Season Ticket as it will only get him one way! I appreciate TC need to make a profit but why have the last 3 hours just been completely cut rather than reduced to one an hour for e.g. Even just running the Star clipper alone from Embankment to Greenwich would mean we could have a 10:30 and a midnight from Embankment, giving us a chance to get home! I would like to kindly ask the decision makers at Thames Clippers to please please reconsider completely cutting the evening service. Please sign if you think Thames Clippers should bring back some services after 9pm (comments welcome)…

    Please reconsinder the cuts to teh clipper service, or at least running one an hour after a certain time. It used to be a fantastic service, but now is a glimmer of what it could be.

    We like to use the clipper especially at the weekends and later at night and have found the service has decreased since we moved to the area. We would very much like the service to run later!

  3. Natasha Haggerty London UNITED KINGDOM

    Proving to be very difficult and worrying trying to get home if there is a need to work late or at weekends. An hoirly service would suffice as at least you can work round that….

    I rely on this surface to get me home in the evenings!! Please reinstate evening services. It's one of the best things about living at the Royal Arsenal complex.

    The evening service needs to be IMPROVED, not cut – it is already far too unreliable, too often stopping at the O2. It could be less frequent, but it does need to be reliable right through to 24.00 – this is a core social service, not a profit maker, a city is about people, 'the profit' goes to the social-enconomy, NOT to the transport providers.
