Tuesday, September 01, 2009

WSDOT Ferries Division (WSF) is adding two 149-passenger foot ferries to the one auto ferry service between Seattle and Bremerton for the Monday afternoon commute and until further notice. WSF is contracting with private operator Victoria Express to provide this service.

Pending fog delays, passenger-only service will begin Monday, Aug. 31, with one 149-passenger ferry leaving Bremerton at 3 p.m. and leaving Seattle at 4 p.m. A second 149-passenger-only ferry is expected to begin service leaving Seattle at 4:20 p.m. From that point, passenger-only service is scheduled as follows:
•    5:00 p.m. Bremerton
•    5:40 p.m. Bremerton
•    6:20 p.m. Seattle
•    6:45 p.m. Seattle
•    7:15 p.m. Bremerton
•    7:55 p.m. Bremerton
•    9:05 p.m. Seattle

The full service day Bremerton passenger-only schedule is posted at: www.wsdot.wa.gov/ferries

Auto ferry service was reduced on the Bremerton route because the Wenatchee has been removed from service following a hard landing Sunday morning, Aug. 30. TheWenatchee is currently at Todd Pacific Shipyards in Seattle for repairs. WSF is working hard to get the Wenatchee repaired and operating before Labor Day.
