BC Ferries increase no April Fools Day joke

The timing is perhaps unfortunate, but when the calendar flips from March to April, travellers who use British Columbia Ferries will be digging a little deeper once again for their journey.

An increase of 4.15 percent is ready to go into effect on April 1, which means that travel from Prince Rupert to Port Hardy will increase from 130 to 135 dollars, while the vehicle tariff will jump from 300 to 312 dollars.

BC Ferries outlined how the cost of operating and capital expenditures, as well as lower than anticipated traffic levels have combined to make the rate increase a required thing from the Ferry corporation's point of view.
