Cable Ferry Buckley Bay - Denman Island

To Be In Service Fall 2014

VICTORIA – BC Ferries announced today that the company will proceed with its plans to design, build and operate a cable ferry between Buckley Bay on Vancouver Island and Denman Island. The new 50-car vessel is expected to be in service by the fall of 2014.

“At BC Ferries we are constantly looking to identify ways to keep operating and capital costs as low as possible while maintaining our high standard of safety and customer service, and a cable ferry provides substantial cost savings of $19 million over the life of these assets calculated on a discounted net present value basis,” said Mike Corrigan, BC Ferries’ President

A public information session to update the community on the cable ferry project will be held on Thursday, November 29 from 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm at the Denman Island Seniors Hall on Denman Island.
