Getting through the George Massey Tunnel

The George Massey tunnel runs under the Fraser River to connect Richmond and Delta. Many people use this route to reach the Tsawwassen ferry terminal for Victoria. However, bicycles are not permitted in the tunnel. Cyclists have two alternatives:

  • Bicycle Shuttle Schedule - Use the free bicycle shuttle. Hours can be irregular, so check the schedule and days of operation
  • Public Transit Schedule - Put your bike through the tunnel via bus with bike rack - check with TranLink for fares based on your point of origin.

Optional Insurance

As people who bike, we do our best to keep ourselves safe on the roads, and keep our valued machines from being damaged or stolen. But have you ever thought about what would happen if your bike were stolen, or if you were to get in a crash or even cause one? Insurance to cover these three events (theft/loss, accident/injury, and liability) can support you. Visit our insurance page for more info and details on insurance providers who specialize in cycling.
