The following announcement comes from the CEO of BCFerries, Mike Corrigan. Please keep in mind that the discounts are for passengers only and do not include vehicles.
BC Ferries is offering a promotion for travel discounts and introducing 50 per cent off passenger fares on select sailings on all routes this fall. It has been a busy summer at BC Ferries with passenger traffic up five per cent, and vehicle traffic up 4.7 per cent for the first quarter of fiscal 2016, compared to the same period last year.
While we are uncertain how long this increase in traffic will last, this promotion allows BC Ferries to test variable pricing, offering discounts on sailings that are not typically full, such as select middle of the day sailings Monday through Thursday, and Saturday afternoons and evenings. This will provide us with valuable information on travel patterns for our Fare Flexibility and Digital Experience initiative, which will offer flexible pricing options for different sailings when it is rolled out in 2017.
BC Ferries is also planning further discount promotions in the late fall and next spring that we believe customers will enjoy. Please follow the links on our website home page for full details on our 50 per cent off passenger fares promotion, including a list of which sailings are included. Stay tuned for details on other discount promotions coming soon.
CEO and President, BC Ferries
