Travel Apps :: BC Ferries Tracker

bc ferries app {Editor's Note: Sadly, the BC Ferries Tracker app is currently MIA. Regardless of your smartphone platform, the fastest and most efficient way to get up-to-date ferry conditions is navigating to mobile.bcferries.com.}

I have many memories of waiting for many moons in ferry line-ups during BC Ferries busy summer season.  Sometimes line-ups are so long, people order pizza to the ferry terminal for dinner and to pass time.  Although the introduction of reservations has helped the waiting forever factor, it does cost $15 per sailing, so I welcome an app that reports ferry loads to help trip plan accordingly.

Still in its infancy, the third-party developed BC Ferries Tracker app provides terminal conditions including waits, vehicle capacity data and webcams for major sailing routes. I look forward to an official BC Ferries app, but in the meantime, this edition is a starting point.  If you're a Blackberry or Android user, don't worry about the app, navigate to mobile.bcferries.com on your smartphone for the same info!
