West Seattle Water Taxi’s all-day/every-day season starts today

April 9, 2012 at 1:50 am | In King County Water Taxi, West Seattle news | 4 Comments

Spring is finally here, so far as the West Seattle Water Taxi is concerned – its spring/summer schedule is now in effect. No more service gaps between morning and evening commute, no more Water Taxi-less weekends, while this schedule is in effect. See it here (and remember that the shuttle schedules are changing to match the boat schedules too). If the expanded Water Taxi brings you back on board for the first time, remember some things are different in the Seacrest area – Alki Crab and Fish moved out a month ago, and the suddenly complicated Marination situation is being worked out, but Alki Kayak Tours is open for the season, and brand-new Alki Juice and Java is open across the street. New for the Water Taxi itself – the county Ferry District has a new administrator, Christine Nelson.


  1. Why isn’t the water taxi on a levy? We have money for a carnival ride but not our schools.

  3. Has anyone else read through the new brochures they are handing out on the water taxi with details about the summer schedule, and found it odd that it states that bus #37 will run limited service on Saturdays? I can’t find any further details about that anywhere. Just curious if that was a mistake or is it really going to start running on Saturdays?

  4. Love the Water Taxi & it’s land shuttles! Saves a lot of time going downtown with all the bridge issues & Viaduct work going on. It is a great help!
