Busy but Bearable Weekend at Split Ferry Port as Travelers Return Home from Holidays

August 24, 2019 – Will it be a nightmare escaping Split this weekend? A closer look at the ferry port crowds. 

As was expected, the penultimate Saturday in August is set for many travelers to return home after their summer holidays. The traffic of vehicles and passengers, especially from the Central Dalmatian islands, is also felt at the Split ferry port. However, travelers shouldn’t encounter too many delays on the way from the ferry port through Bačvice, reports Slobodna Dalmacija.

“We expect over 85,000 passengers and over 15,000 vehicles to pass through the Split Ferry Port this weekend, with an emphasis on returning from the islands. Everything is going according to the timetable except that at 9 am and 12:30 we had to introduce one extra line to Supetar, given the large number of vehicles waiting to board. In the next day, we will see how things will work out and react accordingly,” said Jelena Ivulić from the Jadrolinija branch in Split.

Otherwise, the Split-Supetar-Split line has 14 regular trips daily, which are always full. The Sesartić family spoke to Slobodna Dalmacija about their travels from Supetar to Split and onto Zagreb on Saturday.

“We have waited in line for about an hour, and judging by the number of vehicles in front of us, we will probably wait another hour and a half, if not longer. The queue for boarding vehicles is all the way to the roundabout in Supetar, which is good. We thought it would be longer as they announced. The utility and fire department guys are down the road and directing drivers to create order. We have heard that bottles of water are being distributed to passengers and vehicles, but that may be the case at the end of the queue,” said Ana, who is traveling with her family.

Increased passenger and vehicle transport is also expected on Sunday and even Monday when travelers increasingly choose to travel to avoid traffic jams.
