‘Is the new procedure working? Bluntly, we don’t know yet’: Letter from ferries’ Triangle Task Force

Almost four weeks into the procedural changes that Washington State Ferries hopes will alleviate backups on the Fauntleroy-Vashon-Southworth route, the volunteer task force overseeing them says it’s too soon to tell if they’re working. They’ve written an open letter to ferry riders:

The new procedures (explained here) were implemented on June 19th. The task force met again earlier this week, starting with an hour of observation at the Fauntleroy dock during the pm commute.

    Data is not in yet. We will write another long letter later.

    Is it as big of a mess as the new Kitsap water taxi?  If you want to see daily riders really mad (one lady swore at the dock worker guy helping coordinate the line of people) just visit Colman dock water tax area  around 5pm.

      Last week was only the first week for that service.

        Ok, it’s poorly executed.

      Yes, yes it’s much bigger. We have a Vashon Ferry Advisory Committee Facebook page. Check it out, you may be shocked at the information and photos you’ll see.

    WSF sure does know how to pat itself on the back.

Sorry, comment time is over.
