Transit Accommodation at Snug Cove Terminal
Through Phase 3 engagement, we heard a desire to have buses drop-off and pick-up passengers closer to the terminal than they do today. As part of our concept development, we tested a number of options for allowing transit closer to the berth. The limited space available at the terminal presented significant challenges. We found we must either widen into the hillside, or create costly over-water area to give buses the room they need to turn around, to avoid conflict between buses and pedestrian traffic, and to avoid conflict between buses and vehicle traffic while loading and unloading.
We tested many potential options for allowing transit closer to the berth, examples of different concepts we tested include:
At this time, our concept does not show transit stalls close to the terminal due to the significant challenges present. However, Bowen Island Municipality, Translink, Coast Mountain Bus Company, and BC Ferries will continue to discuss options for improving transit access at the terminal as we go forward.
Thank you for participating in the forum and sharing your comments and questions about transit accommodations outlined in the draft terminal concept.
