Still time left for input on coastal ferry service

B.C. residents have until Dec. 21 to have their say on the future of coastal ferry service.

Faced with declining ridership and rising costs, the B.C. government has been gathering public input on considerations to achieve $26 million in service cuts.

During the past five weeks, representatives of the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure have held 40 small group meetings and public open houses in 30 communities seeking input.

While the province's public consultation meetings have ended, British Columbians can still provide input through the coastal ferries engagement website at coastalferriesengagement.ca
