  1. (from the commentary of Feb. 16)
    “Mike Skehan offered that the Task Force should consider adding charging for parking as
    a revenue stream. The total cost of the trip should be considered.”
    Just to clarify my comment: I began and ended my statement with a clear message that I was NOT proposing to charge for parking, but that each ferry trip begins and ends in a vehicle (mostly), and that parking issues need to be part of the final report. There are costs associated with driving on the ferry, or electing to park on one side, and get in your vehicle on the other side.
    Just basing the costs of the ferry on the boat trip itself, whether walk on or drive on doesn’t look at the whole picture. That was my point.
