With a permanent link between the sister islands in the pipeline, a short-term solution must be created for the interim period until the former is completed. This fast ferry service will ensure that commuters are offered a more convenient option whilst crossing over, with possible routes linking Gozo to Valletta and other central areas.
A combination of a regular 2-4 times daily catamaran service directly to the Grand Harbour, coupled with a revision of the ferry times to every 30 minutes will go a long way to alleviate the concerns raised by regular commuters. Eventually the Gozo Channel Ferries can be replaced with smaller more efficient ones, resulting in a constant shuttle service. The fast ferry service could be extended to additional trips to Sicily from Gozo opening up more interesting touristic 2-centre holiday options
I totally agree with this proposal.
Gozo is a draw in itself and if trying to encourage people to commute to work in Malta or Gozo, a shuttle ferry service is required.
The future of Gozitans who wish to continue to live in Gozo and in the meantime work and/or study in Malta is reliant on a permanent link.
