There were a few changes to parking availability in Snug Cove in 2017. With construction underway on the Cove Commons building, the parking lot on the North side of the Library has been removed and the parking lot on the West side is now a combination of Library parking and three hour parking.
A new parking area on Miller Road opened in 2017. You can park up to 12 hours in the lot which is a five minute walk to the ferry and three minutes from Snug Cove amenities. It has direct access to the trails so you can enjoy a few minutes of Bowen nature as you begin or end your commute. Council approved the plan for this new lot on February 14, 2017.
On the West side? Try Park & Ride!
If you don’t want to spend your time looking for parking in the Cove, you can park for free at the Park & Ride at 1421 Adams Road (Satellite Fire Hall) and take the C10 Bluewater-Snug Cove bus to meet the ferry. Use your Compass card to tap on and you can transfer to a bus in Horseshoe Bay on a single fare.
We are currently collaborating with TransLink to have a bus stop number installed at the Park & Ride where you can access TransLink’s Next Bus tool.
Extended bus service
TransLink announced service improvements in 2017, including the extension of service on the Bowen Island community shuttle routes to 8:00 pm to meet the arrival of the 7:30 pm ferry in Snug Cove.
