BC Ferries has announced today that the 3.9% fare increase predicted for April 1 will, for the time being, be offset by a 1% fare rebate because of continuing low fuel prices. Most fares will therefore rise by an average of 2.9% next Wednesday. Because of the way in which fuel rebates and surcharges have to be accounted for, the 1% fuel rebate will appear as a separate line on your ticket. The fuel rebate does not apply to fares chargeable under the BC Resident Assistance Program.
The new fares between Nanaimo and Gabriola are available now on our Fares page.
