Ferry fares to rise June 27th
The cost of using a ferry in B.C. is going up as the price of fuel on the world market increases.
BC Ferries says in a news release that it will remove fuel rebates starting June 27.
The rebate and surcharge mechanism is used to manage the volatility of fuel prices, and BC Ferries says it doesn't benefit financially from the plan.
The added costs vary depending on ferry trips, but on major routes an extra 50 cents will be charged for passengers and $1.70 more for a vehicle.
