Don’t Miss the Boat!

It’s Time to Be on Time

We’ve always said you should arrive at least 1 hour prior to departure time. It’s a policy that’s been in place for years—but in reality, it’s a policy that hasn’t been strictly enforced. Whether someone was stuck in traffic or a GPS led them astray, we would often wait for late arrivals at the ferry terminal.

Through passenger feedback, however, we realize one of the best ways to enhance overall satisfaction is by ensuring on-time departures. It makes our passengers happy, it improves schedule reliability, and it’s better for the environment—with reduced idling, CO2 emissions, and fuel consumption.

So, starting June 15, 2018, it’s time to be on time at Bay Ferries. Here’s how you won’t miss the boat for your next Maritime journey between Nova Scotia and New Brunswick:
