Ferry travellers in B.C. will soon pay more for the service, and within three years, rates will rise as much as 12 per cent.
The British Columbia Ferry Commission has approved a 4.1 per cent hike in April, another four per cent in 2014 and 3.9 per cent in 2015.
The prices have been capped to factor in efficiency targets and service level adjustments.
BC Ferries has also been ordered to submit plans for reducing fuel consumption and use of alternate fuels within the next 30 days.
