    It's a terrible thing when a corporation that is made from a public government institution, makes money and dictates the rules and regulations, making money from sumptin that we already still pay for through subsidies...So far as I'm concerned...make more sailings....there should never be a reasonable excuse for the inability and restriction for freedom of travel

    It is terrible that businesses who use and support our ferries daily and weekly are not given a priority pass. Poor management by BC Ferries.

    Everyone has the same rights and access to the ferries, business should not be prioritized. Long weekends are busy everywhere and reservations are necessary at most parks/ferries/activities. If anything BC ferries should do a better job of increasing sailings as they are part of the highway system.

    No: a number of spots should be held for islanders (until boarding), who may need to travel for urgent reasons.

    No, Island residents should have a lower travel cost to the mainland. Visitors to the islands should pay regular price. It’s already expensive to travel to and from the mainland.

    Reductions for residents are long overdue. Businesses should get priority boarding because we need the transfer of goods to flow.

    No, ferry fees are high enough, Swartz Bay to Tsawwassen subsidizes the gulf island routes. Reservations are another tax on all islanders.

    NO! The ferry route is part of the Trans Canada Hiway
    What an absurd proposition! Already far too much deck space reserved as it is.

    I totally agree with Brett above, extension on the highway and should be drive on and free

    BC Ferries is part of Trans Canada highway and should be free. At least for VI residents!

    Reservations should be eliminated completely

    Repeat question,
    NO, not everyone can estimate when they’ll arrive at the terminal. After all this is an extension of the highway you should be able to just drive up, load and go,,,, all for free. No gimmicks, cash grabs or excuses for taking more of our hard earned money
