Update for foot passengers and cyclists using the Corran Ferry
Earlier this year The Highland Council agreed to introduce charging for foot passengers and cyclists using the Corran Ferry.
Two shore-side self-service ticket machines, one on each side of the crossing, at the top of each slipway, have now been installed and will “go live” on Thursday 22 August 2019 for the ticketing of foot passengers and cyclists.
Their installation has been greatly helped by the development of modern technology, with the machines solar-powered and linked to back-office software for card-payments and ticket issue records by mobile wireless technology, allowing for the accurate recording of the number of people using the service.
The new fares for foot passengers and cyclists are:
- Foot Passengers - £1.00
- Pedal Cyclists - £1.50
- Registered Disabled - Free
Passengers in vehicles are included in the car fare and do not need a foot passenger ticket as well.
These new charges, as with all Corran Ferry fares, will be reviewed annually in line with The Highland Council budget.
