BC Ferries is announcing a new fall promotion, on the same day it’s putting out its latest financial results.
This fall, the ferry corporation is offering a 50% fare discount for passengers on all routes, during off peak times.
The discount comes in on September 8th, and sticks around until October 15 — not including Thanksgiving.
It’s in effect Monday through Thursday on some middle of the day sailings, on Saturday afternoon and evening.
The deal comes as BC Ferries releases its quarterly financial results.
Its reporting fare revenue was up by $11.9 million and retail up by $1.4 million, compared to the same quarter the year before.
Expenses were up overall, but not because of operating costs — which were actually down by 2.8 million dollars.
