Long term strategies include converting new ferries to natural gas fuel and exploring passenger only private service to supplement BC Ferries sailings.
The cancelled runs are mostly early morning or late evening, many with passenger loads of 20 per cent or less. The largest reduction is a one third cut to Port Hardy Prince Rupert run, BC Ferries' longest and most heavily subsidized service that lost $31 million on operations last year.

BC Ferries is also planning a pilot project with slot machines on the main routes from Vancouver Island to the mainland, to test the revenue potential.

Other runs being cut include Horseshoe Bay to Bowen Island, Comox to Powell River, Gabriola Island to Nanaimo and Quadra Island to Campbell River.

There are no further reductions proposed for the main Vancouver Island runs, but Stone said the ministry's target is to find another $5 million in savings on those routes following reductions last year to the Tsawwassen Duke Point route.
Ferry reductions outlined by the ministry review will go ahead in next spring, after another round of consultations with coastal communities to look for schedule adjustments to make the remaining runs serve residents as effectively as possible.
