Washington State Ferries seeking input

Ferry ridership is expected to surge 30 percent by 2040. Washington State Ferries (WSF) is developing a Long Range Plan to better understand and plan for the changing needs of the system through 2040.

“The plan will serve as our blueprint for the next 20 years. It will outline service changes and recommend investments in vessels and terminals for resilient, efficient, and sustainable ferry service for years to come,” said Assistant Secretary Amy Scarton.

WSF is hosting nine open houses to share information about the Long Range Plan and gather input on community priorities. Attendees will have the opportunity to meet project staff, ask questions, and provide early input about issues to be addressed in the plan.

An online open house will run from April 10 - May 24. It includes the same information that will be shared at the in-person meetings and an online comment form.
