BC Ferries resumes limited food services on select routes
VICTORIA – BC Ferries is carefully introducing limited food services on select routes between Vancouver Island , Metro Vancouver and the Sunshine Coast. BC Ferries remains committed to the health and safety of its customers and employees, and the company will strictly adhere to provincial and federal guidelines during this gradual resumption of food service.
Limited hot food services are available on the Tsawwassen – Swartz Bay, Horseshoe Bay – Departure Bay and Horseshoe Bay – Langdale routes. This includes a limited burger menu, chicken strips, fries, handheld breakfast sandwiches, hot oatmeal, packaged salads, brewed coffee and tea, beverages, packaged pastries, cold cereal, yogurt and fruit cups.
On vessels travelling between Tsawwassen – Duke Point, customers can enjoy Bread Garden sandwiches, sushi, brewed coffee and tea, beverages, packaged pastries, cold cereal, yogurt and fruit cups.
BC Ferries is ensuring the safety of passengers and crew by supporting physical distancing in food service areas, enhancing cleaning and sanitization efforts and reducing the number of touch points. All hot food will be served in packaging for customers to take to their vehicles, outerdeck or limited cafeteria seating.
For those who choose to travel, BC Ferries encourages responsible behaviour while on board, including maintaining physical distance from other passengers, remaining in vehicles when possible and limiting movement around the vessel. This includes Transport Canada’s requirement for possessing a face covering and wearing it when they cannot maintain an appropriate physical distance of two metres.
As this situation is rapidly evolving, BC Ferries encourages customers to monitor the website for any additional changes to service. For full details on service changes and the measures
