What is council income from fares?


Argyll and Bute Council claims that its four ferry services are ‘unsustainable’ without £500,000 additional funding from the Scottish Government (The Oban Times, December 14).

Currently, the Scottish Government ‘only’ gives a grant of £675,000 towards the average yearly running costs of £1,176,578. Nowhere in the article does the council mention the income it raises from ferry ticket sales (how much is this per year?), or how it might generate more income other than charging island residents even more than they pay already.
