Ferry fares rise 4.1% from April 1.

BC Ferries has announced that they will be implementing the full 4.1% fare increase approved last year by the Ferry Commissioner, with effect from April 1.

Passenger fares for the round trip between Gabriola and Nanaimo increase by 40 cents to $10.30; vehicle rates increase 95 cents to $24.50.  Rates for experience card holders are expected to increase by similar amounts.

As an extra sting in the tail, it will now cost you a minimum of $60 to top up your passenger Experience Card (up $5 from $55) and $105 (up from $95) to top up a vehicle card. Ouch!
