FREE Q to Q Demonstration Ferry Preview Weekend!

From: External-Communications <communications@newwestcity.ca>
Good afternoon,

I am happy to notify you that the City will be doing a free preview weekend of the Q to Q demonstration ferry service between Quayside and Queensborough on Saturday, July 29th and Sunday, July 30th. The Q to Q demonstration ferry service will run in August and September 2017 and will operate Saturdays, Sundays, and holiday Mondays from 9:00 am and 7:00 pm with sailings every 20 minutes other than several scheduled breaks. The service will also run on Fridays evenings in August from 5:00 – 9:00 pm to accommodate the weekly Fridays on Front being held in Downtown New Westminster until August 25th.

The ferry vessel, MV Hollyburn is operated by Western Pacific Marine and can hold up to 40 passengers and four bicycles per sailing. Regular fares are $2 for adults, $1 for seniors and children 5-16, and free for children under 5. While exact change is required on the ferry, ferry tokens can be used and these may be purchased in advance at the Anvil Centre, Queensborough Community Centre, and Tre Galli Gelato Caffé located at the River Market.

The demonstration ferry service will provide an interim connection between Queensborough and the Quayside neighbourhood of New Westminster to help better understand the potential demand for a future permanent connection. During the demonstration period, statistics and information will be collected regarding ferry usage. Surveys will also be conducted to gain more insight on where passengers live and work, the purpose and destination of their trips, and how frequently they would use the service if the service was expanded.

Please distribute this information widely to your contacts and thank you for your support.
