Gabriola ferry schedule adjusted

Beginning Saturday (Sept. 6), B.C. Ferries will be instituting changes to the ferry run that services Nanaimo to Gabriola Island.

In conjunction with the Gabriola Island Ferry Advisory Committee, the ferry service provider has made adjustments to the schedule to address sailing delays that users had been experiencing since the April 28 implementation of the current schedule.

According to Darin Guenette, B.C. Ferries’ spokesman, there are a handful of relatively minor changes to the schedule that range from five, 10 and 15 minutes in length.

As an example, Guenette said the 8:40 a.m. route leaving the island – from Monday to Friday – will be moved up to 8:55 a.m. The ferry will still depart at 8:40 a.m. on the weekend.

B.C. Ferries and the Gabriola committee will continue examining opportunities to improve schedule efficiency and reduce sailing waits.

The schedule from now until March 31 has been updated on B.C. Ferries’ website to account for the changes.
