Good news for all the residents of Hvar Island. The town of Stari Grad has announced the introduction of a new catamaran line, as well an extra service connecting Stari Grad with Split.
Starting from October 2nd, the new Jelsa (Hvar) – Stari Grad (Hvar) – Bol (Brač) – Split catamaran route will commence.
In addition to the existing ferry routes, this new catamaran line will be available to Hvar residents every working day, from Monday to Friday.
This will undoubtedly be of great benefit to them, especially outside of the summer months.
“This line is primarily a response to the needs of the islanders who have been appealing for better connectivity with Split for many years, especially outside the tourist season. We are grateful to the Government and the Split-Dalmatia County for recognising the needs of the islanders. We extend our thanks to all the island towns and municipalities for their proactive collaboration, including the town of Hvar, the municipalities of Jelsa, Bol, and Sućuraj, as well as Jadrolinija and the Coastal Liner Shipping Agency.
Special thanks go to the citizens’ initiative ‘For the Island,’ which passionately advocated for and supported efforts to improve the island’s connectivity with the mainland. This is a collective success, and only through collaboration can we continue to enhance the quality of life for all our citizens,” announced the Stari Grad Town.
The catamaran will depart from Split every working day at 11:30 AM and from Stari Grad at 1:00 PM, except after October 28th when it will depart at 2:00 PM.
