Ferry fares based on Road Equivalent Tariff will be introduced to Bute’s two routes in October 2015.

Transport minister Keith Brown announced on Tuesday that RET fares would be introduced at the start of the 2015-16 winter timetable on all routes where it is not already in operation.

The news means there will be a 12-month period, following the introduction of an RET trial on Arran’s ferry routes this autumn, when the 55-minute sail from Ardrossan to Brodick will be cheaper than the 35-minute crossing from Wemyss Bay to Rothesay.
