The BC Ferry schedule has been altered for today and tomorrow (Wed).

Spokesperson Astrid Braunschmidt said the Queen of Coquitlam encountered a mechanical problem today and had to be taken out of service.

Until she is back in service, the Queen of Surrey will operate on a modified schedule.

Braunschmidt said there won’t be any change to the morning sailings because the Queen of Surrey services those anyway, it’s just the afternoon sailings that will be affected.

She suspects it will be business as usual for the Queen of Coquitlam by Thursday.
