2013 Community Engagement on the BC Coastal Ferry Service
The BC coastal ferry service has been wrestling for more than 20 years with cost pressures that threaten the financial sustainability of the system. Accordingly, the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure has engaged coastal communities and ferry users from across the province on strategies to ensure the long-term sustainability of the coastal ferry network. To that end, the Province has initiated a new round of community engagement in 2013 following a province-wide engagement process in November and December of 2012.
This phase of the BC Coastal Ferries Community Engagement runs from November 18 to December 20, 2013.
On November 18, 2013, the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure issued a News Release on the changes to the system.
