Update: Fauntleroy-Vashon-Southworth back to 3 boats

ORIGINAL 12:56 PM REPORT: The Fauntleroy wait wasn’t much last time we checked that semi-live image from the dock camera, but the state warns that people leaving Vashon might face quite a wait this afternoon till they are back to three boats. We were just talking here the other day about the aging ferries, particularly the half-century-old Evergreen State class, and one of its vessels, the Klahowya, is currently broken down and being checked out. That leaves only the Issaquah and Tillikum on the Fauntleroy-Vashon-Southworth run at the moment. Here’s the two-boat schedule; here’s the place to check for updates later (we will too).

8:48 PM UPDATE: WSF says that Klahowya is fixed and back in service.

    This had a direct impact on the bus schedule for the 116 this morning. I assume it won’t impact the return trips tonight since they are less synched to the Ferries, but it’s worth checking One Bus Away especially if this continues to tomorrow morning.

    Not sure if I understand why traffic would be worse coming OFF the island then going TO it. Most people are heading back to the island after work. WSF website currently says there isn’t a back up at the Vashon terminal. Crossing my fingers it stays that way for my hubby’s commute back to west seattle from vashon. Of all days for a ferry to crap out, it picks his 30th Bday when we actually have dinner plans ;(

Sorry, comment time is over.
