We are very excited to report that a month long FREE ferry service between Govan and the Riverside Museum was launched last Friday, 12th July. The ferry will operate daily until Sunday 11th August between the hours of 8am – 6pm Monday to Friday, and 9.45am – 5.30pm at the weekends.
The ferry departs from the pontoon at the bottom of Water Row. It is a shuttle service so will be ‘shuttling’ backwards and forwards continually throughout the day. Simply turn up when you are ready to sail!
This is an excellent opportunity for people from Govan to cross the Clyde for free during the school holidays and visit the Riverside Musuem, the Tall Ship or the West End of Glasgow. It is also hoped that more day-trippers will be attracted to Govan, where they can visit the newly displayed Govan Stones in Govan Old Parish Church, the Saturday market, or see what else Govan has to offer.
We encourage you all to make use of this free service while you have the chance. If we are able to demonstrate that the demand exists for a river crossing between Govan & Partick it could help make the case to raise funding for a bridge or subsidised ferry in the long term.
Please note, this free service is in addition to the ferry operated by ‘Clyde Cruises’, which runs between the City Centre & Braehead, also stopping at Water Row and the Riverside Museum and costing £3 return.
