FAQ's - Torpoint Ferry

Why doesn't someone 'pull up' all the cars so there are smaller gaps in between them and therefore making room for more cars?

This does work and but it is quite labour intensive and would add a lot to the costs of running the ferry having extra staff made available for this. Equally whilst sometimes it would get more vehicles on, a lot of the time it would just move space around , this is as even after moving up everyone in a row there might still only be space for ¾ of a car which doesn't help. We use this more often during refit time when we only have the two ferries available in peak rush hours where it can make a big difference but this is dependent on staff availability.
