BC Ferries demands more of your money

The arrival of April Fools’ Day this year may see an end to the Harmonized Sales Tax, but ferry travellers in BC can expect to pay at least four per cent more.

Rates are going up, but Deborah Marshall with BC Ferries says frequent users will still be able to access discounts.

“What we call the ‘BC Ferries experience card’ to give residents of smaller communities who commute to larger communities on a daily or weekly basis a reduction in the cost of their travel.  We’ve increased the minimum buy-in level.”

Marshall says foot passengers must now keep a balance of at least 60 dollars to qualify for discounts…. that’s up from 55.

The minimum for drivers is currently 95-dollars and that’s going up to 105.
