2 Water Taxi reminders: Tonight & next week

Two reminders about the Water Taxi: First, it’s running on an extended schedule tonight because of the Sounders FC game at CenturyLink Field. Second, remember that right after that, both the West Seattle and Vashon Water Taxi routes are scheduled to be suspended ALL WEEK for the downtown dock move. The 773 and 775 shuttles will continue running, though, according to the county’s shutdown-week transit-rundown here.

    What time is Thursday’s Seahawk game at the Clink? I can only imagine the traffic.Why run the shuttles when there is no water taxi?

      Seahawk Fan, You may not realize that despite the fact that Harbor Avenue and Alki Ave SW are lined with apartments and condos, without the shuttle there would be only 4 weekday Metro bus trips westbound during the evening commute and 4 weekday Metro bus trips eastbound during the morning commute. There would be zero bus service on weekends in this very dense neighborhood. So yes, we need the shuttles. You can switch shuttles to get from Alki to the Alaska Junction.

    Bad timing…was thinking of using the water taxi to avoid the Metro s#&%-show trying to get home from downtown.  :-(

    Steve I would use the word horrendous timing.  Peak tourist season, the water taxi is heavily used.

    Good move keeping the shuttles running, very unfortunate timing to make the terminal move.  KCMetro is behaving very much like WSF in this instance.

    Any chance they are going to get this done super early?   I mean, this is really crappy timing!!!

    Amazing coordination to time this move/shutdown at the peak of the summer tourist season combined with the worst pinch point thus far coming out of downtown in the afternoon from the Alaska Way area to 99 due to single lanes from viaduct demo on the south end. You would think Seattle would time the various projects to spread out the impact instead of all at once in peak season. 

Sorry, comment time is over.
