Washington State Ferries today – The usual 2 boats on the Triangle Route. Check WSF alerts for changes. Use the real-time map to see where your ferry is.

    per KNKX this morning the 7:55 from Vashon and the 8:30 from Fauntleroy have been canceled due to lack of staff.

      WSF sent an alert about the 7:55 but then it vanished from the alerts list so I’m not sure if that is still true, checking.

        Both boats are in service as shown on “live” Vessel Watch so if there was a problem, it was apparently fleeting (pun not intended).
