The Province and BC Ferries partnership project to install Wi-Fi service to 14 additional ferry terminals as part of the Connecting British Columbia program was completed on July 28th, 2022. This brings the total number of terminals with free Wi-Fi access to 21.
The project is part of the $1.5 million grant fund given through the Ministry of Citizens Services’ Connecting British Columbian program, which is in place to keep British Columbians connected in those smaller coastal communities. The access to free Wi-Fi allows people travelling the ability to connect for work, leisure or general trip information while waiting for their ferry or upon arriving at their destination.
BC Ferries does not ask for credit card details or personal information to use Wi-Fi networks at terminals or on board vessels. Consider any unlocked Wi-Fi network claiming to be “bcferries” and asking for credit card or personal information to be malicious. Report any suspicious networks to a BC Ferries’ terminal attendant or the Chief Steward’s Office.
The coverage of Wi-Fi within BC Ferries’ terminals, includes public lounges, vehicle holding compounds and where practical, parking lots.
Reliable, high-speed Internet service at terminals helps you better access online ferry service information and the internet for personal use.
