BC Ferries, the unreliable fat cat of BC, is a symbol of the middle ages. It is a disgrace for BC that millions of displaced people have to endure the pain of relying on such an unreliable unfriendly private enterprise to get to their home or work to and from the mainland. What do China, Russia, and Sweden have in common? China has connected Hong Kong to Mainland China by a bridge, Russia connected Crimea to the Russian Federation by a bridge and Sweden (you guessed it) is connected to the rest of Europe by a bridge between Sweden and Denmark. With technology and revolutionized engineering it would take a mere 2 years to build a bridge connecting the Sunshine Coast and Bowen Island to the Mainland and abolishing the inconvenient unreliable BC Ferries all together. “Yes but what about the cost” argument is not even an argument. The Chinese can build it and pay for it and the taxpayer would not have no fork out a dime. How? By a toll bridge connecting Bowen and The Sunshine Coast to the mainland with a mere $10 toll (beating the increasing unreliable $60 price that you have to pay BC Ferries and endure lines, unreliable service and longer travel time. “What about the environment” you might add. A bridge with electric cars going through it is much better for the environment than those fossil fuel toxic vessels that BC Ferries employee. BC Ferries is a profitable money-making enterprise that lines up the pockets of its executives at your expense, peace of mind and convenience. It's about time BC acts and connects the Sunshine Coast and Bowen Island to the mainland and say no more to BC Ferries and the fat cats that run it

2 people were caught vaping on board the Tsawwassen BC Ferries terminal. The man of immigrant background was given a 6 months ban and forced out of the terminal by aggressive BC Ferries staff in a thug like manner while the other person, white, was just told to not vape on board the terminal. "BC Ferries is just racist" said the man who was banned, "This is an outrage. What kind of people are these? There needs to be an over haul in the entire BC Ferries management for serious incompetence"

People should avoid them because they are very rude and they don't care about their customers. Worse & horrible is small word for BC Ferries.

My main grievance concerns reservations.
Anyone who has ever traveled on board BC Ferries knows the anxiety of sailing with a vehicle. Will I make it on the next sailing?
Just beware the reservation system doesn't actually provide
an unconditional reservation.
You will be penalized to travel standby and the reservation fee forfeited if you do not show up in the defined window period preceding your sailing.
With the travel costs on BC Ferries higher than ever it's often advantageous to travel without a vehicle or not at all. Whether you take a taxi or public transit to and from the terminal, park at the terminal, or carpool - all these options will cost less than taking your vehicle and without the added anxiety.
