Long weekend brings out busy Island traffic at BC Ferries


The Labour Day Long Weekend brought out busy traffic at BC ferries, with full ferries and standby sailings along the popular Tsawwassen-Swartz Bay route well into Saturday afternoon.

As of 3 p.m. on Saturday every hourly sailing departing Tsawwassen until 4 p.m. was listed as being 100% full, with a two-sailing wait for cars and oversized vehicles.

BC Ferries also posted an advisory that paid parking facilities at the Tsawwassen Terminal were at capacity as of 9:55 a.m. on Saturday morning.

In June, BC Ferries added extra sailings, including a midnight departure from Tsawwassen on August 30.
