It has been an eventful year for Washington State Ferries and its riders, from crew shortages to ship challenges at the start of planning for the Fauntleroy terminal / dock replacement. The WSF plans to start the New Year with online community meetings, and the dates / times have just been announced:
Commuters, occasional passengers, and community members are invited to attend Washington State Ferries’ upcoming virtual community meetings designed to provide updates and answer questions about the ferry system.
On Wednesday January 5 and Tuesday January 11, WSF staff will discuss the service of the ferry system and ongoing efforts to mitigate the challenges as well as the progress of key projects. WSF Deputy Secretary Patty Rubstello will lead the meetings in coordination with the Ferry Advisory Committees, appointed representatives of the communities served by the ferries who advise the WSF.
Both meetings will cover the same material and are designed to give people the flexibility to join the meeting that best fits their schedule. Meeting participants will be able to ask questions and make comments. People can join the meeting from a laptop, desktop, or mobile device, but prior registration is required to participate.
