With some of BC Ferries’ older vessels reaching the end of their life, the company is looking for input on the amenities and features for the next generation of vessels. BC Ferries is hosting both an online survey and in-person pop-ups on select sailing routes between Metro Vancouver and Vancouver Island.
These new vessels would replace four serving the routes between Metro Vancouver and Vancouver Island: MV Queen of Alberni, MV Queen of New Westminster, MV Queen of Coquitlam, and MV Queen of Cowichan. These vessels serve on the Tsawwassen-Swartz Bay, Tsawwassen-Duke Point and Horseshoe Bay-Departure Bay routes.
BC Ferries is looking to maintain fare affordability, minimize environmental impact, adjust capacity based on demand and services provided on board. Feedback regarding accessibility, people travelling with children, pets or using bicycles, as well as outdoor spaces, food/drink options and other conveniences is requested.
The new ferries are expected to enter service in the mid-2020’s.
