Foot passengers on BC Ferries will now be able to book in advance on three major routes between Vancouver and Vancouver Island.

As of Thursday, foot passengers can reserve online for Tsawwassen – Swartz Bay, Tsawwassen – Duke Point and Horseshoe Bay – Departure Bay routes.

BC Ferries says there will be no additional cost for this service. However, Seniors and students will need to check-in with a ticket agent at the terminal to redeem advanced bookings made online.

This is due to seniors needing proof of age and students needing proof of enrolment.

Automated kiosks will be in service for other foot passenger customers to redeem prepaid bookings.

BC Ferries says these steps will help limit contact between customers and employees.

Advanced bookings will be limited at first, but if these sell out ferries may still have space available for in-person customers who purchase their foot passenger ticket at the terminal.

Bookings and information are online at bcferries.com.
