Cleaner fuel would lead to increase in ferry fares [1]

Star Ferry and New World First Ferry have resisted the Marine Department’s proposed anti-pollution proposal to bring vessels’ emission standards in line with road vehicles. The Star Ferry warned that by converting to ultra-low sulphur diesel, which was $1.80 more expensive per litre, $5 million would be added to its fuel bill for 2.5 million litres of fuel a year, which would increase pressure for an increase in fares. Unlike motor vehicles, ferry emissions are not regulated.
