The price of going over the Golden Ears Bridge got a little steeper Tuesday.
Translink says the increase of between a nickel and 15 cents, depending on the vehicle you drive, is because of inflation.
Maple Ridge Mayor Ernie Daykin doesn’t think that’ll stop people from going over the bridge that connects Langley to Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows.
“Maple Ridge, if I have a meeting in Langley, I can be there in 15 or 20 minutes, as opposed to pre-bridge, going around the Port Mann or with the ferry, well over an hour.”
The bridge is expected to lose 35 million dollars a year, blamed on much lower than anticipated traffic levels.
