Customers have been advised to give extra time travelling to their respective terminals in order to navigate traffic safely.
It’s also recommended that passengers travel at non-peak times to avoid the busiest sailings, if possible.
Parking facilities at Tsawwassen, Horseshoe Bay, and Little River terminal have reached full capacity.
BC Ferries has also issued comments for the following terminals:
Tsawwassen: Taxi service, the BC Ferries Connector, and Translink provide service to the Tsawwassen terminal. Customers can also use the “Park & GO” which provides shuttle service to the terminal.
Horseshoe Bay: Alternate parking can be found at the Lion’s Club parking lot near the Gleneagles Community Centre in West Vancouver.
Southern Gulf Islands: Heavy foot traffic is expected throughout Easter Monday and walk-on passengers are recommended to travel through Swartz Bay, if possible.
Little River: Limited roadside parking is available on Wilkinson Road. Passengers are advised to use alternate methods of travel to get to the terminal.
Give extra time when heading to the terminals and be sure to pack your patience.
