New fare choices for BC Ferries will provide better "value, flexibility and certainty" for passengers travelling to or from the Island.
The Prepaid and Saver fares, announced today, can be purchased in advance of sailing the major routes between the Island and mainland.
BC Ferries President and CEO Mark Collins, who has previously spoken at Chamber events about moving to a prepaid model, said once travel restrictions are lifted the new fares will "help spread traffic across the day, reducing sailing waits at popular times.”
Saver fares will range from $49 to $73.70, including reservation, and are available year-round for travellers able to choose less busy sailing times.
The prepaid fare enables customers to pay for reservations and travel in advance, making boarding more convenient.
