S5W-03802: Neil Bibby (West Scotland)

Scottish Labour

Date lodged: 17 October 2016

To ask the Scottish Government what impact the road equivalent tariff would have on fares if the Arran ferry service was moved from Ardrossan to Troon.

Answered by: Humza Yousaf 31 October 2016

We are committed to supporting our lifeline ferry services and providing the best possible service for the communities, who rely on these. We understand concerns about the affordability of ferry fares, which is why we have rolled out Road Equivalent Tariff fares across the entire Clyde and Hebrides Ferry Services network.

The impact on Road Equivalent Tariff fares, were the Arran ferry service to relocate to Troon, will form part of Ministers’ considerations, along with a range of other factors.
