In the three months ending 31 December 2022, BC Ferries reported that compared to the same period in 2021;
- 5 million Passengers and 2.0 million vehicles travelled, an increase of 10% and 3%, respectively.
- Revenue, inclusive of Safe Restart Funding, was $234.8 million, an increase of $12.6 million.
- Net loss was $22.7 million, compared to a net loss of $1.6 million, primarily as a result of less Safe Restart Funding being applied in the quarter and higher operating costs.
- Operating expenses were $245.2 million compared to $209.5 million. This increase is mainly due to an increased number of sailings, with corresponding higher labour costs, as well as higher fuel prices and maintenance expenses.
