SEATTLE – With the 2013-2015 transportation budget signed, Washington State Ferries is gearing up to head out to ferry-served communities to discuss the implications of the budget, as well as new vessel construction progress, ferry system performance measures, liquefied natural gas as a source of fuel, and route-specific issues.
“I look forward to visiting the communities and hearing directly from our riders on the issues that affect their everyday travels,” said David Moseley, WSDOT assistant secretary, ferries division. “I always find this feedback valuable and it helps us when we consider making changes to the system.”
