Fall/winter holiday schedules for West Seattle Water Taxi, Metro

Transit updates for next Thursday, Veterans Day, include the fact there’s no King County Water Taxi service (West Seattle *or* Vashon) at all. That reminder’s just in from the county, which lists these Water Taxi-less dates:

· Veterans Day – Thursday, Nov. 11
· Thanksgiving Day – Thursday, Nov. 25
· Day after Thanksgiving – Friday, Nov. 26
· Christmas Day (observed) – Friday, Dec. 24
· New Year’s Day (observed) – Friday, Dec 31
· Martin Luther King Jr. Day – Monday, Jan. 17
· Presidents Day – Monday, Feb. 21

And if you’re wondering about Metro buses … here’s their official announcement of service changes for the same dates, and a few others. (Veterans Day is a “reduced weekday service” date for Metro.)

    I can understand all of the holiday closures except the day after Thanksgiving. Wouldn’t you think that on the busiest shopping day of the year that the water taxi would run so that West Seattle folks would not have to take a car or bus into downtown Seattle ?

    You would think so. However someone realizes it will be easier to kill off the water taxi next year if they only schedule runs for when people are at work, so it looks like no one wants to use it.

Sorry, comment time is over.
