WSF released the Final Long-Range Plan on June 30, 2009, at an historic point in Washington’s marine transportation. The culmination of new legislative direction, new leadership, and new information about ferry system customers provides a unique opportunity to set a positive direction for the ferry system. While challenges remain, particularly the identification of a stable source of capital funding, this plan sets forth a vision for the future of the ferry system that will enable it to maintain its current routes and service levels, improve its operation, and make essential vessel and terminal investments.
The Final Plan presents a vision for the future of the WSF system. Consistent with legislative direction, it maintains current levels of service with limited improvements (as new vessels are acquired to replace retiring vessels) and the state’s role asprincipal owner and operator of the marine transportation system. The plan presents a realistic service and capital investment strategy that seeks to balance service goals and long-term funding requirements.
