BC Ferries ditches fuel surcharge
Trips on BC Ferries will be more affordable thanks to the company's decision Wednesday to eliminate fuel surcharges on its major and minor routes.
The two per cent fuel surcharge was removed altogether as of Friday, Nov. 30, on the three routes between Vancouver Island and the Lower Mainland, including the Tsawwassen-Swartz Bay run, as well as the Horseshoe Bay–Langdale route, and other minor routes.
“The recent decrease in the cost of fuel allows us to eliminate the fuel surcharges, which
is great news for holiday travellers,” said Mike Corrigan, BC Ferries’ President and CEO. “We
are pleased to be able to reduce the cost of ferry travel for our customers as every bit helps.”
