SAN DIEGO — The cost of taking a trip on the San Diego-Coronado Ferry just saw its biggest increase in decades.
A one-way fare is now $7, a 40% increase from the $5 that used to be charged per ticket. The increase was approved last month after complaints of lost revenue during the pandemic. The company that operates the ferry claims it lost $1 million last year and more than half of its ridership.
The last price hike was a 25-cent jump from $4.75 to $5 in October 2018, with additional previous increases in 1988, 1991, 2005, 2008, 2010 and 2014, according to the San Diego Union-Tribune.
The commuter ferry remains free for Coronado and San Diego residents and military members. See the schedule and how to buy tickets on the ferry website.
