Muk/Clin - Two East Elevators Out of Service at Mukilteo Terminal

The two elevators on the east side of the Mukilteo Terminal located nearest the transit center are out of service for the next 2-4 weeks for repairs. Customers who need to use the elevator to access the terminal building can use the elevator at the west end or the stairs at the east and west ends of the building.  However, this will not affect boarding for walk-on ADA customers who will still board the ferry from the car deck.

Thank you for your patience while we work to quickly make repairs to the elevators.

Customers Advised to Limit Non-Essential Travel/Statewide Mask Requirement

As a reminder, the Governor’s Safe Start Plan is in effect. Customers are advised to limit travel on ferries to essential purposes only, and to observe physical distancing. On some sailings, the number of walk-on passengers may be restricted so that riders can maintain physical distance.

Customers traveling by vehicle are encouraged to remain in their vehicles for the duration of their trip, while those in the cabin should practice safe physical distancing, wash your hands and avoid traveling if you feel ill.

Passengers are also asked to comply with the Governor’s statewide order requiring that face masks and coverings be worn in public to limit the spread of COVID-19. The requirement includes both indoor and outdoor spaces.

Thank you for helping us do our part to keep our community healthy.
