Some multi-journey tickets on Bute’s two ferry routes will cease to be valid when new RET fares come into effect in a few weeks’ time.
Existing ten-journey tickets will no longer be valid from October 1, although holders of 50-journey tickets for the Rothesay-Wemyss Bay and Rhubodach-Colintraive routes will still be able to use those.
Anyone unable to use portions of their existing ten-journey tickets will be able to approach CalMac for a refund.
The validity of the 50-journey ticket is being retained because the discount available is greater than that which would apply under RET.
A company spokesperson said: “If people buy a multi journey pass and they are not all used by the time RET is brought in then they will be entitled to a refund.”
