Service on Brentwood Bay – Mill Bay route resumes tomorrowVICTORIA – BC Ferries is reminding customers that service on the Brentwood Bay – Mill Bay route resumes on Wednesday, June 24. Due to concerns for the health and safety of communities and BC Ferries’ crews, and to match service levels more closely to demand, the Province amended the Coastal Ferry Service Contract in April to allow for the temporary suspension of the Mill Bay – Brentwood Bay service, as well as other service reductions.
As of June 24, the daily schedule on the Brentwood Bay – Mill Bay route will be:
- From Brentwood Bay: 7:30 am (except Sunday), 8:40 am, 9:50 am, 11 am, 1:15 pm, 2:25 pm, 3:35 pm, 4:45 pm and 5:55 pm
- From Mill Bay: 8:05 am (except Sunday), 9:15 am, 10:25 am, 11:35 am, 1:50 pm, 3 pm, 4:10 pm, 5:20 pm and 6:30 pm
BC Ferries requests customers remain in their vehicle for the entire sailing to ensure physical distancing is maintained. The company encourages customers to travel safely on board and through the communities. This includes Transport Canada’s requirement for possessing a face covering and wearing it while at the terminal or in passenger areas of the vessel. The ship’s crew collects fares on this route. While BC Ferries recommends customers pay with a card and use ‘Tap’ where possible, prepaid tickets are also accepted.
BC Ferries thanks customers for their patience and understanding during these extraordinary times. As this situation is evolving, the company encourages customers to monitor its website for any additional changes to service.
