TransLink DayPasses to be sold on BC Ferries starting Wed Feb 17

Guess what? Starting Thursday February 18 Wednesday, February 17, you can buy TransLink DayPasses in the gift shops on ferries sailing to Tsawwassen or Horseshoe Bay!

DayPasses cost $9 for adults and $7 for seniors, children aged 5 to 13 and students with a valid GoCard. They offer unlimited travel for the entire service day on Coast Mountain and West Vancouver buses, SeaBus and SkyTrain and can be applied towards the purchase of West Coast Express tickets.

The #250 Horseshoe Bay/Vancouver and #257 Horseshoe Bay/Vancouver Express provide service from Horseshoe Bay directly into downtown Vancouver, while the #620 Tsawwassen/Bridgeport Station runs hourly from the Tsawwassen Terminal to the Canada Line for rapid transit into downtown (with half-hour service from April 20 to September 7).

DayPasses will be sold from now until September, and then TransLink and BC Ferries will decide whether to continue the sales.

    I’m really glad to see this, but I wonder why this practice was discontinued last year. For years day passes have been sold on the ferries or at the terminal and then it stopped. BC Ferries blamed Translink. I haven’t heard a satisfactory explanation for this. It was a real inconvenience to have to pay a fare to get to Bridgeport where you can then buy a day pass, but no reimbursement for the fare already paid.

    I complained to Translink, but never heard back from them.

    Hopefully it is continued permanently.

    Hmmm, I recall that: I don’t remember getting an answer about why that stopped. Well, whatever the case, we now have DayPasses back!

    I think it is great – I think it would also be great if faresaver books were sold on board.

    About time. BC Transit DayPasses have been sold on BC ferries for as long as I can remember!
