Transportation from BC Ferries
Pacific Coach Lines provides service between various Vancouver and Victoria locations, and makes the voyage from Tsawassen (Vancouver ferry terminal) to Swartz Bay (Victoria ferry terminal). It is also possible to join the PCL bus service once on board the ferry, and thereby use PCL for transportation on just the Victoria side, for example. Bus drivers sell tickets on board the ferry for the first 20 minutes to half-hour of the voyage. There will be an announcement on the ferry as to where the bus drivers are located on the boat.

Traveling from the ferry at Schwartz Bay to downtown Victoria, the Pacific Coach Lines bus drops off almost directly outside the Howard Johnson hotel – this stop is call ‘Royal Oak’.
The final destination in Victoria for the PCL bus is the downtown Victoria terminal on Douglas Street. The terminal is a 5-10 minute cab ride from the Delta Ocean Pointe Hotel.
