Ferry services subsidies double over a decade

PUBLIC spending on Scotland’s ferry services has doubled over the past decade, a watchdog has found.

Audit Scotland said Transport Scotland’s spending on ferry links came to more than £209 million in 2016/17, an increase of 115 per cent since 2007/8.

The report also showed 1.4 million cars and 5.7 million passengers were carried over the 32 subsidised routes in 2016. Out of 158,000 scheduled sailings, 99.7 per cent took place and 99.6 per cent were on time.
