Kwuna fare going up

  • Mar. 23, 2009 12:00 p.m.

It will cost more to travel between Graham and Moresby Islands after next Wednesday (April 1), when BC Ferries makes its annual fare adjustment. This year, fares on the minor routes will increase by an average of 7.25 percent, the Ferries announced earlier this month. Fares on the major routes connecting Vancouver Island and the Lower Mainland are going up by just under 4 percent. For Kwuna passengers, the increase is closer to 10 percent: it will cost $26.40 for a vehicle and driver to travel between Alliford Bay and Skidegate Landing, compared to the current fare of $24.05. While fares continue to rise, four things remain free on the Kwuna: bicycles, seniors who travel between Mondays and Thursdays, children under 5, and students travelling to school events.
