HOVERTRAVEL is consulting with passengers on possible changes to Isle of Wight services, including cuts at peak times.
The company said under current arrangements, short turnarounds at peak times were putting pressure on its ability to meet performance targets and that not every service connected with the Hoverbus at Southsea for commuters.
It has asked customers for their views on a series of proposals to change its timetabling arrangements.
The options include reducing peak time services from four to three an hour, but keeping the rest of the timetable as it is, reducing peak time services with a revised timetable during the rest of the day or keeping services as they are.
Neil Chapman, managing director of Hovertravel, said: "It is important for us to consult with our customers before we make any changes so that we develop a greater understanding of their needs.
"Hovertravel strongly believes that as well as suggesting possible alternatives, it is essential the consultative process allows customers to pick an option of no change.
"At this early stage, with the consultation starting before Christmas and running until the end of January, it appears that the majority of customers to date have picked the no change option."
