WestShore offers prizes for opinions on boat commute

The WestShore Chamber of Commerce is investigating the viability of a passenger ferry service from the West Shore to Victoria’s Inner Harbour and is looking for advice.

To help with a study started last fall, the chamber is asking South Island area residents to fill out an online survey to help flush out the idea.

“This passenger ferry could really impact the lives of people who commute back and forth between the West Shore and downtown Victoria,” chamber CEO Dan Spinner said, in a press release. “It is crucial to hear from people who might use the ferry as it could cut down their commute times, as well as reduce the amount of traffic congestion and vehicle emissions that occur in the ‘Colwood crawl’.”

The survey focuses on passenger location along with level of interest in using such a service.

Survey participants will be entered into a draw to win a variety of return trips on Blackball Ferries to Port Angeles.
