Ideas for Washington State Ferries

Two ideas that I would like to see implemented to accommodate ferry users are:

1. Contract with private carriers to provide passenger-only service to and from Bellingham and/or Anacortes. Two round trips every day during the peak season.

2. Enhance the “Ferry Alert” system to provide real-time information regarding schedule changes and allow reservation holders to arrive 30 minutes before the “actual” sailing time, not the “published” sailing time. The fundamentals are in place to do this.

Time for action rather than excuses!
