Traffic was busy at B.C. Ferries’ terminals Thursday on what is, historically, a busy day for travellers.
There were two-sailing waits at Departure Bay for a short time but travellers at other terminals faced a maximum of one sailing to wait, said Deborah Marshall, spokeswoman for B.C. Ferries.
It was expected that most travellers would arrive at terminals between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m., Marshall said.
“We’ve got lots of extra sailings on and four ships travelling between Tsawwassen and Swartz Bay,” said Marshall.
A windstorm delayed sailings before Christmas but the weather has been good after the holiday and B.C. Ferries has largely been on schedule.
For the rest of the holiday period, B.C. Ferries is predicting heavy traffic for the Tsawwassen-Swartz Bay route on Saturday and Sunday on the 11 a.m. sailings.
Heavy traffic is expected on the Horseshoe Bay-Departure Bay route on Sunday from 10:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., and on the Tsawwassen-Duke Point route on Friday’s 12:45 p.m. sailing.
