Now that the report is complete, what's next?
We are now reviewing feedback and making schedule changes that balance public input with operational constraints to improve the on-time performance for Langdale and Bowen Island routes.

Early this fall, we will present these new schedules and report back on other key considerations noted by the community. New schedules and the report back will be available online, and informational pop-ups will be hosted onboard select sailings on Langdale/Horseshoe Bay and Bowen Island/Horseshoe Bay vessels. Pop-up events will be an opportunity for community members to discuss the new schedules with BC Ferries staff. Dates for these events will be released shortly; we will continue to keep you updated.

We would like to obtain your email address to keep you informed about the On Time Sunshine Coast schedule consultations. You will only be contacted with updates that relate to the On Time Sunshine Coast schedule consultations, unless you have separately provided your email to BC Ferries previously for other uses. You understand that the services we are using to collect your email address and send your emails are located outside Canada. Survey Monkey privacy policy. MailChimp privacy policy.
