Kwuna fare rises (again)

  • Mar. 21, 2008 3:00 p.m.

BC Ferries is raising fares on most routes April 1, which means a driver and vehicle will be paying almost $1 more to travel between Graham and Moresby Islands. The new fare is $16.80 for a vehicle and $7.25 for a passenger. That’s a total of $24.05 for a car and driver, a 4 percent increase from the current fare is $23.10 for a car and driver. Prepaid ticket fares rise to $10.90 per vehicle and $4.25 per passenger when purchased in a book of 10. BC Ferries said the fare increases are necessary due to the rising cost of fuel as well as operating and capital spending. The company also warned that the cost of fuel is an ongoing concern. If world oil prices remain high, as they are right now, BC Ferries said a fuel surchage will be implemented by fall. Fares on the northern routes were hiked last fall so they aren’t affected by this round of increases.
