Port Townsend gives up on passenger ferry idea

November 21st, 2012 by ed friedrich

Port of Port Townsend commissioners abandoned their plan last week to run a passenger-only ferry between Port Townsend and Seattle. Though they got a $1.3 million federal grant to buy a boat, they would’ve needed to pay for operations. As everybody before them has found out, you can’t make a profit. The $1.3 million will be given back to the feds. For more, see old pal Charlie Bermant’s story.
