Marine Atlantic 2014-15 schedule now available for booking

by Darrell Mercer

Whether you are planning a trip, travelling for business, shipping freight or just want some time away, Marine Atlantic’s 2014-15 schedule and rate structure is now available for booking.

This year’s schedule will see a maximized number of popular overnight crossings during the busy summer tourist season providing increased selection to customers. Outside of the peak summer season, the schedule has been realigned to meet traffic demand, especially during the low winter season. During periods of low traffic demand, maximizing the utilization of vessel deck space will allow Marine Atlantic to achieve greater fuel efficiency.

In addition to the availability of the new schedule, Marine Atlantic will also be updating its rate structure for travel on or after April 1, 2014. All tariff rates, including passenger fares, vehicle fares, the drop trailer management fee, cabins and reserved seating, will increase by three percent. These rate adjustments are necessary to reflect the increased costs associated with materials, supplies and labour. There is no increase to the fuel surcharge at this time.

The new rate structure will be updated for all travel beginning April 1, 2014. Reservations are available up to and including March 31, 2015. For a full listing of Marine Atlantic’s schedule, please visit www.marineatlantic.ca

Marine Atlantic looks forward to welcoming you on board and serving your travel needs in the months ahead.
