I'll be staying at the U of Victoria for a week. How can I get from there to the ferry at Schwartz Bay? I'll be picked up in Twassawen. What is the cost of bus? taxi? I'll have a suitcase.

Above is the bus route from UVic to Swartz Bay ferry terminal. It's set for a weekday. Saturday and Sunday service will be different. On Sam's link you will find bus schedules for both the #39 and #70 bus and a phone number to call for transit info if you need it.

A taxi will cost about $75.00

Yup, bus is best choice. That #70 bus takes you practically to the passenger terminal front door.

From UVIC you should take the number 4 bus as it goes down Hillside and turns on to Douglas Street. The number 70 runs up Douglas Street so you would just need to cross the street on Douglas and jump on the 70 to Swartz Bay Ferry Terminal...

The cost is only $2.50, and make sure that you ask for a transfer from the #4 bus driver so that you don't have to pay to get on the #70 bus.

Shouldn't be a problem bringing your luggage on the bus, a lot of people do, you just have to stay on the first floor of the bus (can't carry suitcases to the top of the double decker buses)...
