Waiheke residents fed up with crippling ferry prices

From Morning Report, 6:47 am on 17 July 2023

Waiheke residents took to their kayaks with placards yesterday to protest against expensive ferry fares.

An adult return fare at peak hours is $59.

Fullers declined to come on the programme this morning but in a statement says there are a variety of cheaper fares available including monthly and FlexiPasses.

Waiheke Local Board acting chair Bianca Ranson says the commercially operated Fullers ferry service is crippling the community.

Bianca Ranson spoke to Corin Dann.
