Our warm summer weather was undoubtedly a major factor in the 8% increase in ferry traffic to and from Gabriola this June compared to the same month last year.
According to BC Ferries’ traffic statistics released today, 30,203 vehicles were carried during June – the highest June figure recorded since 2011. The 67,929 passenger journeys was the highest since June 2010.
Although traffic was also up during May, the increase was not enough to make up the traffic lost in 2014 after the service cuts were made.
