Name That Passenger Ferry Service

June 21st, 2010 by ed friedrich

The Port of Kingston is taking suggestions for the the name of its passenger-only ferry service to downtown Seattle that will begin in October. Here are some that it has received so far.

Kingston Flyer
SeaKing
Kingston Passenger Express
Cross Sound Express
Kingston Water Taxi
Kingston Water Bus
KingSea
PTP (Port To Port)
Puget Sound Express
Kingston Sound Express
KSP Ferry

Out of that bunch, I like Cross Sound Express the best. Kingston Flyer’s pretty good, too. They’re all a little boring, though. I think you guys could come up with something more entertaining.The port wants people to be creative, think about what the service is all about, and what name would be a good descriptor of that service. And have some fun with it.

You can reach the port at (360) 297-3016, paxferry.info@portofkingston.org, www.portofkingston.org, on Twitter at @KingstonPOF or on Facebook at Kingston Passenger-only Ferry.
