Sessions will allow riders to provide feedback, get questions answered
Representatives from Washington State Ferries (WSF) will be docking in the communities they serve next month, sharing information and answering questions about what’s new and what’s next for the nation’s largest ferry system.
Starting May 17, WSF will host a series of community meetings to discuss a variety of issues, including the recent legislative session, new ferries, system performance targets, vehicle reservations system, and liquefied natural gas as a potential fuel for the fleet.
“These meetings are great opportunities for people to share their thoughts on the ferry system with us, and for us to answer any questions they might have,” said David Moseley, assistant secretary for the Washington State Department of Transportation, Ferries Division. “I’ll also be recapping the 2012 legislative session and talking about what lies ahead for state ferries.”
During the meetings, Moseley will give a brief presentation on system-wide and route-specific issues. Those in attendance can ask questions and provide feedback to Moseley and his team. Materials and comment forms will be posted on WSF’s community meetings page prior to the first meeting.
