Who made and runs this app?

Ferries App is developed by a small team of independent developers that built this together as a side project.

We wanted an easier way to view ferry schedules on our phones, so we made this app for everyone to use. Hopefully it makes your travel planning a little bit easier 🙌

The app is operated by FA Media Inc., and is not affiliated with BC Ferries or BC Ferry Services Inc.


Is this an official BC Ferries app?

No. Ferries App is an unofficial app.


Is information in the app the same as the BC Ferries website?

We’ve worked hard to make the app useful for coastal travelers like ourselves. Every effort has been made to make sure that the app is giving you accurate information at all times.

However, because the app is not affiliated with BC Ferries, we cannot make any guarantees about the accuracy of the data. It is always a good idea to confirm schedule information at the official website of BC Ferries. 🖥
