B.C. Ferries’ vehicle-deck access restriction plans delayed

A B.C. Ferries plan to keep passengers away from vehicles parked in enclosed decks is not coming together as soon as expected.

“We’re continuing to work with Transport Canada,” said B.C. Ferries spokeswoman Deborah Marshall. “We’re still going back-and-forth with them on the details.

“We were hoping to make an announcement sometime this month.”

The plan calls for passengers to still be able to remain in vehicles parked on the upper, open decks.

Marshall said the move by B.C. Ferries is in keeping with Transport Canada regulations.

Also underway is an effort to ban smoking on all ferries. Smoking is currently allowed on some vessels in designated areas. — Times Colonist
