Contact: Judy Palnau (517) 241-3323
Agency: Licensing and Regulatory Affairs

April 17, 2012 - The Michigan Public Service Commission (MPSC) today issued an order resulting in the suspension of Champion's Auto Ferry's proposed rate increases for ferry service between Harsens Island and Algonac until June 1, or until further order by the MPSC.

The company on March 1 filed a tariff with the MPSC proposing rate increases of $1 on most of its scheduled fares. On March 28, the MPSC suspended rates for 30 days and scheduled a hearing before an administrative law judge.

At the April 12 hearing, the company and the MPSC staff stipulated to postpone the effective date of the rate increase to June 1 or by order of the Commission, whichever comes first. The company is also required to submit certain information to support its rate increase request.

The MPSC is an agency within the Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs.

Case No. T-1866
