Ferry riders, commuters and terminal neighbors are invited to attend one of two upcoming Washington State Ferries virtual public meetings to hear updates and ask questions about the ferry system.

“Like many transportation agencies we are still not back to pre-COVID service levels,” said Patty Rubstello, head of Washington State Ferries. “These meetings are intended to provide our customers with insight about the coming months and respond to questions and concerns.”

The meetings will take place at 1 p.m., Tuesday, June 14 and 6 p.m., Wednesday, June 15.

WSF staff will give a brief presentation on upcoming summer service, hiring challenges and the agency’s process to restore service to pre-pandemic levels. Participants will be able to ask questions and provide comments during the meeting. Both meetings will cover the same material and are designed to give participants the option to join the meeting that best fits their schedule.

Members of the public can participate in the meeting from a laptop, desktop or mobile device, but advanced registration is required to participate.
