Plus: CoastSaver fares offered for weekend

On Sunday, November 11 and Monday, November 12, B.C. seniors will be able to travel for free as passengers on most of BC Ferries’ routes in recognition of Remembrance Day. All customers can take advantage of value-priced CoastSaver fares for themselves and their vehicles on this holiday.

Throughout the year, free passenger travel for B.C. seniors is offered from Monday to Thursday except on holidays. This year, Remembrance Day falls on a Sunday and BC Ferries will join communities around the province in honouring our veterans and their peers by extending the discount to the Sunday as well as the holiday Monday.

In addition, BC Ferries is offering its popular CoastSaver fares on all sailings on the three major routes between Vancouver Island and the Lower Mainland on Remembrance Day. Customers will be able to save $5 per passenger and $15 per underheight vehicle all day on Sunday, November 11 on the Tsawwassen – Swartz Bay, Tsawwassen – Duke Point and Horseshoe BayDeparture Bay routes. That’s 48 sailings with an opportunity to save.

Extra sailings have also been scheduled between Tsawwassen and Swartz Bay on Monday, November 12 to provide more options for customers travelling home at the end of the Remembrance Day long weekend. These sailings will depart Swartz Bay at noon and 4:00 pm and from Tsawwassen at 2:00 pm and 6:00 pm.

On BC Ferries’ northern routes between Port Hardy, Prince Rupert and Skidegate on the Queen Charlotte Islands, the daily discount for B.C. seniors remains in effect.
