Ferry fares - no increases

Ferry fares - no increases

BC Ferries has just announced that there will be no fare increases on the minor routes this year. Bowen (Route 8) is one of the minor routes. Yay!

And for those of us that use reservations when travelling on the major routes, you'll be pleased to know that the cost of reservations has been reduced too.

I don't know how to post the attachment here, but the full announcement will be on the BC Ferries website already or by the end of today.

Here is the Press Release. Good news.

Second year running of stable pricing on ferry fares. However, it begs the question what are BC Ferries doing differently in terms of cost management where they are able to change the way they do business with their customers in such a dramatic and empathetic manner? I ask the question seriously.

(1)The provincial election .Good news BEFORE Bad news AFTER. Remember the reduced sailings after the last election.? (2) Lower oil prices.(3) Saving fuel by not by not running the engine harder when it is late to catch up.

Could not agree more, Bob. Crispy Cracker has lost all credibility (and we won't get into the shenanigans of Rich Coleman). We've always been known to be a skewed province politically, but never as corrupt as this one. "Flying Phil" looks absolutely angelic compared to this bunch of greed-driven parasitic leeches.
