Riders, commuters and terminal neighbors of Washington State Ferries are invited to attend upcoming virtual community meetings designed to provide updates and answer questions about the ferry system.

At 11 a.m. Tuesday, Feb. 9, and 6 p.m., Wednesday, Feb. 10, WSF staff will discuss the ferry system’s continued response to COVID-19 and progress made on key projects in 2020. New head of WSF Patty Rubstello will lead the meetings alongside former Assistant Secretary Amy Scarton.

Both meetings will cover the same material and are designed to give participants the option to join the meeting that best fits their schedule. Meeting participants will be able to ask questions and provide comments.
