Passengers, commuters and neighbors of the terminal are invited to attend one of Washington State Ferries’ next two virtual town halls to hear updates and ask questions about the ferry system.

Meetings will be held at 11 a.m. on Tuesday, May 25 and at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, May 26.

WSF staff will give a brief presentation on service updates, proposed pricing changes, and the agency’s ongoing response to COVID-19. Participants will be able to ask questions and make comments during the meeting. Both meetings will be on the same material and are designed to give participants the flexibility to join the meeting that best fits their schedule.
