Washington State Ferries holiday travel reminder

State ferries typically welcome about half a million riders over the long Memorial Day weekend, but nothing’s typical right now. Under the governor’s “Stay Home, Stay Healthy” emergency order, Washington State Ferries (WSF) continue to encourage everyone to ride for essential purposes only. 

All ferry riders are strongly encouraged to wear face coverings for the health and safety of themselves and WSF employees.

Ferries remain on winter schedules through June 20 with reduced service on several central Puget Sound routes.
