Just looking at The site now. The only changes I can see, are the "Plan your trip" box, as well as the "Check in Center"
The 'Plan Your Trip' box has been there for ages... I didn't see a check-in center though.... unless you mean 'Sign in Center'. Yeah, that seems new. Maybe they're not putting in the 'major' update 'til later?
EDIT: I see that the Sign in Centre isn't really a 'NEW' feature either. It's just a reorganized view....

My apologies if this is already posted elsewhere (if so, mods please delete), but I noticed a recently added section to the website. They have posted the traffic counts for May & June 2010. Seems in the past, these weren't all that readily available. They show some interesting data.

The following news release has been posted on the BCFS website today. Does anyone have any idea of what, if anything is up? Could it be that the Feds will return duties paid by BCFS on the foreign new builds?

Anyone planning on using the BCF travel and reservations center in the middle of the night tonight better do so earlier. It's closing down for the night until about 01:00 tomorrow. (Pacific Standard Time)
WEB USERS ADVISORY: The Travel Centre and Reservations will be temporarily unavailable from 10:45 pm Wednesday October 13th until 1:00 am Thursday October 14th PT for system maintenance. Your patience is appreciated during this short outage.
It doesn't look very exciting, but when you open up one of the PDF files, go to page 37 of each file, and you get a chart of the ferry terminal that you selected. It's really neat. Some of the drawings are a little vague, Tsawwassen Terminal being an example of that, but some are pretty detailed too, one of those being Alert Bay. I've spent awhile looking through those documents now. I'm not sure if it's page 37 on all of them, but on all that I've seen it is. Some of the terminals have more than one drawing, the second usually being one of the last pages of the document.
