The schedule was back to normal through the afternoon, but traffic was busy in both directions.

There were sailing waits on the Swartz Bay-Tsawwassen route due to high post-weekend summer volumes.

Swartz Bay terminal saw extra traffic as participants in the weekend’s Northwest Deuce Days vintage cars events left the Island.
