    Just got an email from WDOT that the Fauntleroy dock is out of service and traffic is being diverted to the Colman dock downtown. Any details?

    • WSB March 25, 2016 (7:57 am)

      The Issaquah broke down and that was the problem – back in service now per WSF. (Update – I should clarify – I meant the dock was back in service; the boat is not.)

        The dock is back in service 2 boat schedule for 4 hours est

    FYI to anyone wondering about the third 57 bus this morning. It came about 8 or 10 minutes late. Hope too many people didn’t miss it.

    Why doesn’t the Vashon Ferry go to Coleman dock all the time?  Seems like that would help our West Seattle traffic problems at least a bit.

      So true. Maybe one day.

    • JanS March 25, 2016 (5:49 pm)

      and think about all those WS workers who live on Vashon, or the local students who opt to go to highschool on Vashon…going to Coleman wouldn’t work very well fr them….or the commuters from Port Orchard/Southworth.

    Have the Southworth boats go to Colman Dock. The majority of riders on that run are from Vashon, however, it would take some vehicles off the road. Hopefully during the viaduct closure, WSF will come up with some commuter time trips into the city….

Sorry, comment time is over.
