Reserve and Plan

Cycling with BC Ferries

Ticketing and Boarding Procedures

Cyclists should proceed to the vehicle ticket booths as directed by cycling signage approaching the terminal. Tickets may be purchased at any available ticket booth.

Cyclists will be directed to a waiting area on the terminal by terminal staff. The ship’s loading officer will direct waiting cyclists to board the ferry on the main vehicle deck. Cyclists will be directed to board either first or last depending on the destination, the ship’s layout and other traffic. In all cases cyclists will be directed to dismount and push their bicycles when crossing the loading ramp to board the ferry.

Onboard Storage

Once onboard, cyclists will be directed to an area on the car deck where bicycles can be secured. Even though BC Ferries crew conduct regular patrols of the vehicle decks, all bicycles and personal gear should be secured.

Unloading Procedures

Cyclists will be directed to disembark, either first or last, under the direction of the ship’s deck officer. In all cases, for safety, cyclists will be directed to dismount and push their bicycles when crossing the loading ramp to disembark the ferry.
