State Investigating Mackinac Island Ferry Fees

The state has stepped in to investigate how much money Mackinac Island ferries charging people to ride. The Michigan Public Service Commission is taking a look at things like rates, fares, and charges. The three companies that serve Mackinac Island, St. Ignace and Mackinaw City are Shepler's, Arnold Transit Company, and Star Line. The investigation started after Shepler's filed a complaint under the Water Carriers Act. The state says there are enough facts to move toward an investigation.
