Route Updates - January 2023
Update: Two Island Class Vessels for Campbell River-Quadra Island Route: New loading procedures
New load and go process
Sailings approximately every 35 minutes means less time waiting. It also means the vessel will load and go. Some sailings may depart with free deck space to help keep turn around times short to prepare for the arrival of the next ferry. In addition, there will be no priority loading lanes, and vehicles will be separated as needed during loading rather than in the terminal holding lot.
New Commute time options
Two ships means more frequent service and new options for your commute to and from home. Service will increase to up to 29 round trips per day, delivering more service at peak times and more capacity overall.
We recognize it will take time to get used to a new ship and new schedules. Please be patient and kind to our crew and your fellow passengers as this new services begins.
