That all changed on Wednesday, as a BC Ferries announced it was testing the use of debit service on its most popular sailing between Tsawwassen and Swartz Bay.

The corporation confirmed the announcement via Twitter, saying that debit service are live on the Spirit of BC vessel and that it will be “all systems go” onboard the ship beginning tomorrow morning.
