Please continue to limit ferry travel to essential trips.

Despite increasing COVID-19 vaccinations and lower case numbers, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention still recommends we delay travel if possible.

That’s why we continue to ask the public to limit rides on our ferries to essential purposes only. If you must ride, be aware that we are still operating modified schedules on most routes because of the pandemic. We plan to increase service on our Fauntleroy/Vashon/Southworth, Anacortes/San Juan Islands and Port Townsend/ Coupeville routes starting May 9.

Additionally, all our crewmembers are now eligible for the vaccine and I’m encouraging them to receive one for the safety of our workforce and our customers.

Even though more and more people are getting vaccinated, federal law continues to require face coverings everywhere on our vessels and throughout our terminals.
