Changes to Colman Dock passenger waiting area and ticket booth started May 8
As part of the ongoing Seattle Multimodal Terminal at Colman Dock Project, several changes have been made to the walk-on passenger waiting area and terminal services effective May 8. The following terminal configurations will be in place until mid-2019:

  • The ticket booth inside the Seattle terminal will open in its new location at the terminal entrance across from Puget Sound Provisions. This move allows more public space inside the main corridor for people waiting for the ferry.
  • The walk-on passenger waiting area will shift to the southwest corner (former Bremerton-only waiting area) of the terminal building. The new waiting area has additional turnstiles and two all-purpose gates to better accommodate customers.
  • The information booth will relocate to the southeast corner of the terminal, adjacent to the ticket kiosks and ticket booth.

Learn more about the project at Colman Dock Construction Update

Seattle Multimodal Terminal at Colman Dock Project

  • Passenger waiting area: Walk-on passengers will use a single, combined waiting area for Bremerton and Bainbridge Island sailings on the north side (Bainbridge Island side) of the terminal. This configuration will be in effect until early May while construction crews build a new combined waiting area on the other side of the terminal (Bremerton side) that will be in place until mid-2019.
  • Bremerton bike passengers: For your safety, please use the marked bike lane located next to the vehicle exit lanes on the south side of the dock (Yesler Way exit). There is construction activity and equipment in the vehicle holding lanes during the day. Do not ride through the vehicle holding lanes to exit Colman Dock.
  • Vehicle lane work: Crews will work in the vehicle lanes on the trestle and underneath the terminal building through April. For your safety, please stay clear of the active work zone and allow extra time to catch your sailing.
  • Bainbridge trucks over 40’: Due to construction channelization at Colman Dock, trucks longer than 40 feet offloading from Bainbridge must exit the Seattle terminal via Marion Street, Monday-Friday, from 6 a.m. to 5 p.m.

  • This work is part of ongoing construction of the Seattle Multimodal Terminal at Colman Dock Project

Sea/BI - Bainbridge Overhead Walkway Load Restrictions - Update
Attention customers who walk on to the ferry at Bainbridge Island Terminal: For the next 5 to 6 weeks, WSF will be reinforcing and repairing the overhead walkway connecting the terminal building to the ferry to compensate for a broken pile beneath the structure.

As a safety precaution, WSF is implementing load restrictions in the area of the broken pile and has now installed a protective barrier to guide customers around the affected area. Please be mindful of the work zone and be courteous to your fellow passengers – especially during peak periods – as the walkway will be narrower while repairs are underway. We apologize for the inconvenience.

Next year, WSF will undertake a more comprehensive project to completely replace the overhead walkway at Bainbridge. For more information about this project, visit http://bit.ly/BIwalkway. Thank you for your patience as we improve our facilities and our service to you.

Faunt/Va/SW - Reminder - Fauntleroy Tollbooth & Traffic Changes
All drivers must stop at the tollbooth to buy or redeem tickets. Drivers will receive a destination card and a receipt, and will no longer have to stop again after the tollbooth to scan tickets. Instead, they must keep their destination cards visible, and will be directed to the appropriate holding lane.

WSF implemented these changes to the Fauntleroy traffic patterns with the aim of improving efficiency at the tollbooth during peak commute time.

Customers could still experience extended wait times during peak travel periods when volume of vehicles waiting to board exceeds capacity. Please follow all instructions from WSF staff and signs. For more information about the new procedure, please visit FVS Improvement. To purchase tickets online, visit Wave2Go.

Muk/Clin - ADA 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.
