How to Make a BC Ferries Reservation
BC Ferries vessels can fill up quickly, especially during popular travel times such as public holidays. Luckily, you can make reservations quickly online, so you can skip those long sailing waits.
What Is BC Ferries?
If you want to travel to Vancouver Island, the Gulf Islands, Haida Gwaii or another one of British Columbia’s other stunning island or inlet communities, your best bet is to take a ferry. BC Ferries is a publicly funded company that offers ferry services around Canada’s west coast, and there are few alternatives. Within the province, the company is the sole ferry operator. You can take a Washington State Ferries boat to southern Vancouver Island, but otherwise, travel options from Washington are limited. There are some flights that operate between the mainland and Vancouver Island, but the prices can be steep. As a publicly funded company, BC Ferries prices are comparably low. However, that paired with the limited number of options means that popular routes can fill up quickly. Reservations are recommended in the summer months and around major Canadian and provincial public holidays such as Victoria Day, Family Day, Easter, Christmas, Canada Day and BC Day.
Does BC Ferries Offer Reservations on All Routes?
BC Ferries only offers reservations on select routes, as this helps keep the sailing process organized in popular destinations. Routes that offer reservations for standard vehicles include Vancouver (Tsawwassen) to Victoria (Swartz Bay), Vancouver (Tsawwassen) to Nanaimo (Duke Point), Vancouver (Horseshoe Bay) to Nanaimo (Departure Bay), Vancouver to the Southern Gulf Islands, Powell River to Comox, Port Hardy to Bella Coola and Port Hardy to Haida Gwaii. For other routes, your best bet is to show up early to ensure you get on the next sailing. However, routes that don’t offer reservations don’t tend to be too congested.
What Kinds of Reservations are Available?
BC Ferries offers reservations for standard vehicles, commercial vehicles, livestock vehicles, groups and foot passengers. Standard vehicle reservations cover most types of personal vehicles along with their passengers. RVs, trailers and motor homes are also covered in this category. Commercial vehicles are defined as registered vehicles that weigh more than 12,125 pounds (5,500 kg). Livestock vehicles include non-commercial vehicles carrying livestock such as horses or cows. Groups can include any group of people with 10 passengers or more, but they have to be traveling in a single vehicle to make a group reservation. Foot passengers include any passenger arriving without a vehicle. Unlike vehicles, foot passengers can only make reservations over the service’s telephone hotline.
How Do You Make an Online Reservation?
To make BC Ferries reservations online, go to the service’s official website and click on the reservations option in the main menu. From there, you can choose which kind of vehicle you’d like to reserve. Select an option and choose a departure date, a departure terminal and an arrival terminal. Fill in your passenger details and vehicle details, review your travel itinerary, and pay for your tickets to confirm your reservation.
Where Can You Find Fare Information and Schedules
If you’re still in the planning stages of your trip, you can find BC Ferries fares and schedules online on the service’s website. This includes standard BC Ferries sailing schedules and package deals that include hotel rooms in popular destinations such as Victoria.

Visiting the Law School
Our campus. your home away from home..
BC Law's campus offers the serenity of rolling hills and tree-lined streets within easy reach of downtown Boston. We invite you to come tour our 40-acre campus, meet current students and learn what makes BC Law distinctive, or engage with us virtually or at admissions events near you. Browse our schedule and sign up online.
Schedule a Visit
BC Law Virtual Tour
Getting to campus, public transportation.
White-lined spaces denote visitor parking.
Proceed past the booth and turn left. Drive past the Boston College shuttle stop on your left and the East Wing (a brick building) on your right until you reach the back of Stuart House (our main administrative building) on your right. Park only in the spots marked visitor or in white-lined spaces—not in the yellow-lined spaces. If you have not received a parking permit ahead of time, you will need an orange temporary parking pass. Please see a staff member in the office you are visiting—Admissions, Career Services, the Law Library, or the Dean's Office—to receive one, and place it on the dashboard of your car.
You’ll find additional visitor parking past Stuart House and the dormitories (Keyes South and Keyes North) on your right and near our game field, the Quonset Hut, our practice field, Alumni House, and another Boston College shuttle stop.
All Boston College campuses are on the Green Line. If you are taking the Red Line, the Orange Line, the Blue Line, or the Silver Line you’ll need to transfer to the Green Line.
There are two options on the MBTA's Green Line: the B train or the D train.
B train and Newton Campus shuttle
The B train ends at the Boston College T stop on Commonwealth Avenue. Once you get off the train, you will see the St. Ignatius Church directly across the street, on the corner of Fr. Herlihy Drive and Commonwealth Avenue. Walk on Commonwealth Avenue, past the Boston College T stop, the Career Center, and dormitories. The BC shuttle stop is at the Main Gate of the Chestnut Hill Campus. Take the Newton Campus shuttle bus, which goes directly to BC Law.
If you decide to take the B line, allow yourself extra time; it makes many stops.
D train and walking
If you take the D train to the Newton Centre T stop, you can walk 15–20 minutes to the Law School.
After you get off the train, walk up the steps, where you’ll see several shops directly across from you. Cross the street and proceed on Herrick Road until you see the First Baptist Church on one corner and Liberty Travel on the other. Cross the street and make a right onto Centre Street. (Starbucks, CVS, the Newton Centre Playground, the Greek Evangelical Church, and the Trinity Episcopal Church will be on your left.) Continue on Centre Street past Commonwealth Avenue and through the residential area. You’ll see a stone wall, with the BC Law entrance on your left.

BC Law: Impact
Exploring our place in our community and the world, bc law ambassadors, meet the ambassadors: hanna and lauren.
The BC Law Student Ambassadors program launched last year. It is designed to enhance the on-campus experience for every prospective student who visits BC Law. The Ambassadors lead campus tours, help out at Admitted Students Day, and serve as a resource for applicants and admitted students who are considering enrolling at BC Law.
I’ll be profiling the dozen or so new Ambassadors during the next few months. Here are the first two! You can read through our archives to see previous profiles. If you are a prospective student and notice something about any of our Ambassadors that you’d like to discuss with him or her – whether it’s a shared alma mater, an interesting extracurricular, or an appealing summer job – do not hesitate to reach out. After all, that’s what we’re here for!

Hi everyone! It’s been a while since my last post because I and the admissions committee have been hard at work on a few projects (one soon to come – stay tuned!) including this one.

Grantee Spotlight – Kinbrace Ready Tours
Kinbrace Ready Tours — Pre-hearing support for refugee claimants
For most people who do not work in the legal system, participating in a tribunal process can be confusing and intimidating. That experience is amplified for refugee claimants attending a hearing that may determine whether they will be able to stay in the country they’ve begun to call home. Many refugee claimants are contending with an unfamiliar language and a new cultural context, making it even more difficult to engage with the Canadian legal system. Add to that the number of documents required, and the complexity involved in filling them out correctly — the challenge can seem insurmountable. Kinbrace Community Society’s Ready Tours support refugee claimants to get comfortable with the tribunal processes before their hearing.
Established in 1998, Kinbrace Community Society’s mission is to welcome refugee claimants with housing, education, and support. In 2008 Kinbrace cofounded Ready Tours with the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees and the Immigration and Refugee Board of Canada-Refugee Protection Division. The Law Foundation of British Columbia supports Kinbrace’s Accessing Refugee Protection program by providing ongoing funding to the Ready Tour initiative. The program’s aim is to provide legal education that readies each refugee claimant for their refugee hearing. This is just one of several programs that the Law Foundation supports in providing legal assistance in refugee and immigration matters.
Ready Tours are available to all refugee claimants in Canada, regardless of place of origin. Tours are virtual via Teams and consist of a presentation explaining the refugee claim process, including who participants can expect to meet, each of the attendees’ roles, legal issues that are commonly addressed, day-of check-in procedures, as well as a 30-minute Q&A session. Participants are provided with an interpreter to ensure they get the most out of their sessions.
Masi Allahverdi, a Ready Tour organizer, is proud of the work she does in helping refugees become more empowered and confident as they prepare for their upcoming hearings. Originally from Iran, Masi not only coordinates the tours but also supports tour attendees through email and phone calls. As Masi says, refugee claimants need someone to trust and support them during the very stressful and unsure time, so she helps them by answering any questions they might have.
“Ready Tours provide refugee claimants with valuable information at all stages of their refugee determination process and specifically before their hearing. They prepare them for this long and tough journey. I really enjoy seeing claimants’ feedback in surveys or emails, when they are thankful for having the opportunity of getting accurate information and asking their questions. I receive messages that say refugee claimants feels less anxious and more prepared for their hearing after their Ready Tour session. Sometimes refugee claimants inform me about their positive hearing decision and that is a real celebration in my professional and personal life!”
The complexity of Canada’s refugee determination system can be confusing and disorienting. Ready Tours empowers refugee claimants by reducing anxiety and helping people who have participated in the program better prepare for hearings that will determine their future.
