The current anticipated return to service for the Veteran is mid-July after which time the MV Legionnaire will begin service to Bell Island in July.

The Department of Transportation and Works apologizes for the inconvenience to travelers while vessels are out of service which has resulted in delays. The department appreciates the continued patience, cooperation and understanding of residents and visitors.
