State ferries keeping on schedule

The Kingston ferry route was one of four that had perfect on-time performances in March. On time for Washington State Ferries means leaving the dock within 10 minutes of the time printed on the schedule. Besides Edmonds-Kingston, the other routes were Point Defiance-Tahlequah, Mukilteo-Clinton and Anacortes-Sidney, B.C., which only had 13 sailings. Seattle-Bremerton finished the month at 98 percent, Seattle-Bainbridge at 98.8 percent and Fauntleroy-Southworth at 97.5 percent.

The main reason for delays was heavy traffic, particularly at Port Townend-Coupeville and Bainbridge.

This month probably won’t be as good because two Triangle route boats are being slowed to preserve their drive motors.

One thought on “State ferries keeping on schedule

  1. Nothing like patting oneself on the back for basically being competent. I would think this is expected not something to send a press release out about.
