To whom it may concern,
I was looking for further clarification as to why or how the decision was made to lump Motorcycles in with the rest of the vehicles for the fuel surcharge.
As it stands right now I am paying :
$10.50 + $0.35 for myself
$17.50-18.50 + $1.35 for the Motorcycle
A single passenger in a undersized vehicle is Paying:
$10.50 + $0.35 for person
$34.75-$36.75 + $1.35 for the Vehicle
Now I am aware that on average you are fitting 3 motorcycles into the same space a car.
The average weight of a motorcycle falls into the 600 lbs category while a car would fall under the 3000 lbs category.
From these two basic calculations it would seem reasonable that the Fuel Surcharge for the Motorcycle should be equal to 1/3 of the Undersized Vehicle Rate of $1.35 on the Nanaimo to Horseshoe Bay route.
In coming to this conclusion I have also brought up the question as to how you came to the motorcycle base rate as it is not 1/3 of the undersized vehicle base rate...
Your response is appreciated and will be posted along with this E-mail on all available Motorcycle forums.
