Motor Saloon Connection Between The King George V Dock and Residential London -- Eastbound Passengers.

In view of the proximity of the King George V Dock to the residential part of London, The Atlantic Transport Line has introduced a new feature by inaugurating a connecting service of Motor Saloons between the Company's berth and the principal London Hotels. On disembarking, Passengers may either travel to Liverpool Street Station in the heart of the City, by the special train awaiting them, or they may proceed to their destination in one of a fleet of comfortable motor saloons, which will transport them and their hand baggage to Hotels in the vicinity of Trafalgar Square.

Two types of vehicles will be provided:—

(a) Motor Saloons for destinations within approximately 4 miles of Charing Cross.

(b) Private Limousines for longer distances.

The charge for a seat in a Motor Saloon will be 5/- per head, and for the use of a Limousine the cost will be £2 minimum, with an additional charge of 1/3 per mile for distances over 15 miles.

Only two pieces of hand baggage per passenger may be taken in the Motor Saloons, but Passengers may make arrangements with Messrs. Carter Paterson & Co. regarding Customs clearance and storage or delivery of their other baggage (see under Eastbound Baggage).

Should the above facilities not meet Passengers' requirements, the Company will afford every assistance in its power to carry out any special arrangements desired.

Passengers wishing to make use of a motor conveyance should apply at the Purser's Office not later than 6:00 pm on the Wednesday before arrival, when a ticket will be issued.

As soon as the Customs' examination has been passed, Passengers should proceed to the car corresponding to the number on their ticket. Their baggage being similarly labeled will be put on board by a porter. Each car will then move off on receiving its full complement.

Eastbound Baggage. Arrangements have been made with Carter Paterson & Co., Ltd. (128, Goswell Road, E. C. 1.) for their representative to board the steamer at Gravesend for the purpose of receiving instructions for the clearance through Customs, and despatch of baggage to destination in Carter Paterson & Co.'s Suburban Area at an inclusive charge of 3/- per package. This will facilitate the departure of Passengers as early as possible after the steamer's arrival.

Baggage will be delivered the same day as cleared to any address in the West or West Central Area of London. Baggage for destinations outside C. P. & Co.'s Suburban Area and within C. P. & Co.'s Home Counties Area at slightly higher rates. These charges cover all services in connection with the Customs clearance and delivery. Baggage for Provincial Towns outside C. P. & Co.'s area will also be received for forwarding by Rail. The clearing and cartage charges for this traffic will be 2/6 per package. Rail carriage from Station to destination will be additional.

An extra charge is made for baggage containing articles which may be subject to duty or are prohibited. Declarations for this purpose can be obtained from the Purser during the voyage and should be filled in and handed to Carter Paterson's Representative, together with the keys, when he boards the steamer.

Wireless Telegram Rates

This Steamer is fitted with Marconi's system of Wireless Telegraphy and also with Submarine Signalling Apparatus

Long Range Wireless Service

This vessel is fitted with special long range wireless apparatus which will enable Passengers to communicate with their friends or business houses on shore throughout the voyage across the North Atlantic Ocean.

The wireless rate for messages directed through the long distance wireless station at Devizes, England, is 10d. per word, through Chatham, Mass. and Louisbourg, N. S., 9/0d. per word, land telegraph or cable charges additional. The ship is constantly in touch with one or other of these stations.

Special Notice

The attention of the Managers has been called to the fact that certain persons, believed to be professional gamblers, are in the habit of traveling to and fro in Atlantic Steamships.

In bringing this to the knowledge of travelers the Managers, while not wishing in the slightest degree to interfere with the freedom of action of patrons of the Atlantic Transport Line, desire to invite their assistance in discouraging games of chance, as being likely to afford these individuals special opportunities for taking unfair advantage of others.
