Mukilteo/Clinton schedule changes

Overview

The current Mukilteo/Clinton sailing schedule was designed for two 124-car Issaquah class ferries. In June 2014, the 144-car Tokitae joined the route. Because the Tokitae is larger and holds 20 more vehicles, the Tokitae cannot keep to the existing schedule and on-time performance has gone down.  WSF proposes to adjust the afternoon sailing schedule to increase loading and unloading times. The total number of daily sailings will not change; there will be no cuts to service.

Local Transit Coordination

We have been in contact with our local transit partners, Island Transit, Community Transit, Everett Transit, and Sound Transit, and they support these changes.
