B.C. Ferries has removed their 1.5 per cent fuel surcharge, as prices for fuel have dropped.

Passengers on the Swartz Bay to Tsawwassen route were charged 25 cents per adult and 85 cents per vehicle previously.

Commercial vehicles were charged 10 cents a foot.

“We don’t benefit at all from Surcharges,” said B.C. Ferries spokesperson Deborah Marshall.

“It is a straight pass-through to fuel, so we are happy to remove it.”

The surcharge was implemented back in June. There can also be a rebate for passengers depending if prices drop even more.

The charge and rebate was put in place 15-years ago, and is set by a process independent of B.C. Ferries.

Exact saving from the removal depend on the route taken.
