I heard there is a possibility the passenger ferry will leave hopkins landing at 6:30 and arrive in Vancouver, downtown at 7:45. Any news about this? How much is the fare?

Coastal Runner seized under court order by private lender. My little bird tells me the lender is an eastern based Corp. Capt.Ihab Shakar will find it very difficult to refinance at reasonable rates. His Coastal Link Ferries is probably doomed unfortunately.His ridership was less than 50% on average, the ship is noisy, it sweats inside due to poor ventilation and expensive to ride.He has no access to Gibsons and area to expand ridership.This will be the third time a passenger ferry to Vancouver has shut down.This is not the first passenger ferry Shakar owned that went broke.
