Sea/Brem/BI: Maintenance Project at Colman Dock
Please be advised that structural maintenance and repair work under the dock at the Seattle ferry terminal (Colman Dock) began yesterday and is expected to last through early spring 2017. This activity should not delay ferry service or significantly reduce vehicle waiting capacity on the dock; however, sections of the vehicle waiting lanes will be closed to the public while repairs are being made to the support beams and trusses below. Thank you for your patience as WSF maintains our facilities and improves our service to you.

Muk/Clin - Pick Up and Drop Off at Clinton Must Enter Through Tollbooth
Customers using the ADA/limited mobility pick-up and drop-off area at the Clinton terminal must enter through the tollbooth instead of the transit bus lanes. Entering through the tollbooth helps keep car traffic out of the bus lanes and ensures your safety and security on the dock. Passengers that are able to walk a short distance can save time and avoid lineups at the tollbooth by using the designated drop-off/pick-up area across from the phone booth on Ferry Dock road. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.
