Winter Ferry Sailings Cut

BC Ferries Chops
Two Winter Sailings To Nanaimo

Effective Oct. 14 BC Ferries customers will have to remember that two night sailings on the Departure Bay/Horsehoe Bay run will be cancelled.

The two sailings chopped are from Monday through Thursday, the effected sailings being the 7:00 pm from Departure Bay and the 9:00 pm sailing from Horsehoe Bay. It should be noted these sailings are still in effect on weekends and peak holiday seasons.

The reductions are all part of cost cutting measures which have included the cutting of 25 union and 35 management positions earlier this year.

For complete BC Ferries fares, schedules and reservation information use this Nanaimo Info LINK.

Note: Has any of the fifth estate ever determined whether these new super ferries are adding considerably to the overall operating costs of this service? Do they use more fuel per passenger than the old style ferries?
