#ferry - The Scottish ferryroute Gourock to Dunoon on the Clyde will transfer to CalMac when the current contract ends next month, becoming part of the Clyde and Hebrides Ferry Services network.

As InverclydeNow writes, from 21 January, CalMac will provide the passenger-only service, in line with the current timetable arrangements. Transport Scotland say consideration will be given to improved harbour facilities for passengers.

Discussions will also be held regarding possible introduction of electric vehicle and electric bike hubs at both ferry terminals, as well as developing the ferry service to encourage active travel users.

The route is currently operated by Argyll Ferries, using the passenger-only craft Argyll Flyer and Ali Cat. Argyll Ferries was set up on 2011 as part of David McBrayne Ltd, the parent company of Caledonian MacBrayne, to bid for the Gourock/Dunoon contract.
