SeaBus service increasing to meet growing demand

Sailings to occur every 15-minutes during peak hours

[1]

Beginning Monday, weekday SeaBus departures will occur every 15 minutes between 7:00 and 9:30 a.m. and between 3:00 and 6:30 p.m. This boost from sailings occurring every 30-minutes will help to accommodate demand and provide more space for customers during peak hours. Demand is expected to continue increasing as B.C.’s economy re-opens and as British Columbians undertake more travel within the province this summer.

TransLink’s Safe Operating Action Plan [2] has also implemented the following measures to increase safety for SeaBus customers:

Weekday SeaBus boardings have nearly tripled since the pandemic’s low point in early April. However, weekday SeaBus boardings remain less than 25 per cent of the levels they were at last year.

TransLink will continue to monitor ridership throughout the system and make service adjustments as necessary to provide as much space as possible for customers.
