A ferry is a merchant vessel used to carry passengers, and sometimes vehicles and cargo, across a body of water. A passenger ferry with many stops, such as in Venice , Italy , is sometimes called a water bus or water taxi. Ferries form a part of the public transport systems of many waterside cities and islands, allowing direct transit between points at a capital cost much lower than bridges or tunnels. Ship connections of much larger distances such as over long distances in water bodies like the Mediterranean Sea may also be called ferry services, especially if they carry vehicles. The profession of the ferryman is embodied in Greek mythology in Charon , the boatman who transported souls across the River Styx to the Underworld. Speculation that a pair of oxen propelled a ship having a water wheel can be found in 4th century Roman literature " Anonymus De Rebus Bellicis ".

Ferries has won approval to buy three new vessels and will seek to bring more standardization to its fleet with the purchase. In a ruling released Tuesday, the B. Ferries Commissioner approved the three new vessels, which will replace the aging Queen of Burnaby and Queen of Nanaimo. A standardized fleet will keep down costs with everything from maintenance to crew training and allow ships to serve a variety of routes, he said. The ferries being replaced — the year-old Burnaby, which sails from Comox to Powell River, and the year-old Nanaimo, which serves the Tsawwassen-Southern Gulf Islands route — can each accommodate vehicles and between and passengers and crew. Plans for the three new ferries call for smaller vessels, two of which will carry up to vehicles and passengers and crew. The third new ferry, with space for vehicles along with passengers and crew, will help with peak- and shoulder-season service on the Tsawwassen-Southern Gulf Island run.
Regardless, said Moseley, the boat will get built. The state could reject the bid and negotiate with Todd to try to bring down the costs. But Steve Welch, head of Todd Shipyards, said his company tried to get the costs as low as possible. The ferry will be built nearly identical to the Steilacoom II, owned by Pierce County and now loaned to the state for the Port Townsend-Keystone route. The shipyard that built it, Nichols Brothers, went bankrupt.
