Thank you to those who gave us the benefit of their views on the proposed passenger ropeways fee increase for 2011. The consultation period ended May 4, 2011.
After reviewing industry feedback, BC Safety Authority has decided on the following rate increase:
September 2011: 12% increase
January 2012: 5% increase
January 2013: 5% increase
The fee increase allows the Passenger Ropeways Safety Program to become cost recoverable, removing subsidization of direct costs and allows for future inflationary cost increases.
The full consultation report is available here: Passenger Ropeways Cost Recovery Consultation Report
As the 2013 fees are now in effect, please see the current passenger ropeways fee schedule, which reflects the changes described above.
