Travellers take flight from ferries


Re: No holiday cheer for Metro ferry travellers to Gulf Islands, Column, Dec. 30

I have been a regular commuter to the Gulf Islands for many years. In the past, I would take the ferry when prices were reasonable. With the significan­t increases to ferry fares, we now have travel options.

Which option would people choose to commute to the Southern Gulf Islands? Option A: Travel to Tsawwassen and take a 2 ½ -hour ferry that costs $90 for car and driver. Or Option B: Travel to YVR South terminal on the river and enjoy a 15-minute ride in a seaplane for $100. I can assure you that I, and many other regular commuters, now choose Option B.
