Holiday Ferries Ridership 43% Lower Than In 2019

From Wash­ing­ton State Ferries

Wash­ing­ton State Fer­ries had rough­ly 267,000 rid­ers from Tues­day, Dec. 22, through Mon­day, Dec. 28.

That’s 43% low­er than the num­ber of peo­ple we car­ried dur­ing the same time frame last year, though vehi­cle rid­er­ship was down only 9%.

Thank you for fol­low­ing statewide restric­tions to lim­it trav­el over the hol­i­day season.

Wednes­day, Dec. 23, was our busiest day with 44,500 rid­ers, which is much less than our pan­dem­ic dai­ly high of more than 64,000 on the Sat­ur­day of Labor Day week­end, Sept. 5.

Shout out to our employ­ees who worked over the hol­i­days to main­tain our vital trans­porta­tion ser­vice and keep cus­tomers safe.

As a reminder, some routes are still oper­at­ing on mod­i­fied sched­ules depen­dent on our COVID Response Ser­vice Plan
