New Intra-Provincial Ferry Schedules Begin July 1
New schedules will be implemented for the following routes:
Fogo Island-Change Islands-Farewell
Strait of Belle Isle
La Poile-Rose Blanche
Rencontre East-Bay L’Argent-Pool’s Cove
South East Bight-Petite Forte
The schedule is also being adjusted for the Portugal Cove-Bell Island ferry run as the province has moved to Alert Level 2.
The schedules were developed based on input from ferry user committees in anticipation of an increase in passengers during the summer months on some routes and more residents travelling within the province.
The Department of Transportation and Works is continuing to monitor the number of passengers travelling on each ferry route. Ferry services will be regularly reviewed to ensure the schedules match the demand of the service.
