West Seattle Water Taxi launches spring/summer schedule Friday

If you’re going to the Mariners’ home opener tomorrow night, don’t forget that the King County Water Taxi‘s West Seattle-Downtown Seattle run is an option for getting there and back. That’s because tomorrow is the day the Water Taxi launches its spring/summer schedule, which means adding midday and weekend runs back to the plan. You can see the full schedule here. It includes special evening service to Mariners and Sounders home games through October 30th, according to the county. As for the shuttle buses, here’s how their changes are explained:

Shuttle routes 773 and 775 will remain in service through the afternoon/evening commute period, but will not serve any arrivals or departures into West Seattle past 7 p.m. Monday through Saturday. However, Sunday shuttle service will be extended to serve passengers taking the final 8 p.m. Water Taxi trip from downtown Seattle.

This is the first year the Water Taxi has run year-round – since last fall, it’s been on a weekday-commute-times-only schedule.

    How long does it take to get downtown?

    It takes 10 minutes to cross the bay.
    My question is why is bus service to and from seacrest so poor? They run a shuttle specifically to get people to and from the water taxi but it doesn’t even run during all of the water taxi’s operating hours. The biggest hurdle for most people in West Seattle riding the water taxi is just getting down there and back in the first place. You’d think this would be a priority, but it is not.

Sorry, comment time is over.
