This Monday, Nov. 11, BC Ferries is offering free passenger travel to active, reserve and retired military personnel, along with cadets and senior citizens in honour of Remembrance Day.
The ferry service offers complimentary travel (vehicle not included) to seniors Monday to Thursday throughout the year with some exceptions, but for the first time will be extending the seniors’ free fare to the holiday Monday as well. In order to travel free, senior citizens must present a B.C. services card, driver’s license or birth certificate.
Military personnel can sail for free on Nov. 11 if they are travelling in uniform or with their official Canadian military identification.
