New Ferry Schedule, Off-Peak Fares Highlight Fall Sailing Season
Riders should consult new schedule for possible changes to their route. SEATTLE – Changing foliage and shorter days aren’t the only things Washington State Ferries’ customers can count on every fall. Seasonal service adjustments start Sunday, Sept. 21, and off-peak fares go into effect Wednesday, Oct. 1. Riders on the Fauntleroy/Vashon/Southworth run will also soon make the crossing aboard a larger vessel.
As summer turns into autumn, fewer tourists and weekend passengers ride the ferry. Accordingly, WSF routinely adjusts the sailing schedule and removes the peak-season surcharge to accommodate expected ridership.
