Washington State Ferries' (WSF) team gears up to head for meetings with ferry-served communities.

With the 2013-2015 transportation budget signed, Washington State Ferries will meet the public to discuss the implications of the budget, as well as new vessel construction progress, ferry system performance measures, liquefied natural gas as a source of fuel, and route-specific issues.

"“I look forward to visiting the communities and hearing directly from our riders on the issues that affect their everyday travels,”" said David Moseley, WSDOT assistant secretary, ferries division. "I always find this feedback valuable and it helps us when we consider making changes to the system.”
 
Eight meetings are scheduled during a two-week period in June. WSF add that they will post meeting materials on the community meetings page closer to the meeting dates.

(WSF explains it is a division of WSDOT, which keeps people, businesses and the economy moving by operating and improving the state's transportation systems.)
