Water TaxiRegular schedule.

Metro – Regular schedule, with trip cancellations possible, so check notification channels such as @kcmetroalerts. If you ride the 120, it’s the route’s last day – Saturday it becomes the RapidRide H Line. A ceremonial ribboncutting is happening in White Center this morning; we’ll be there. Metro’s other spring “service changes” take effect Saturday too, but the H Line launch is the only major one for West Seattle.

Washington State Ferries‘ Triangle Route continues on the 2-boat schedule, with added runs as of this week; check here for alerts/updates and see Vessel Watch for boats’ locations.
