According to WSF, ferry ridership is expected to grow 30 percent by 2040. Riders who want to weigh in on the future of state ferries can share their opinions and suggested priorities at an upcoming open house or online.
The first open house is on Bainbridge Island. It will be held from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, April 17 at Waterfront Park Community Center.
Other open houses will be held in Port Townsend (April 19), Vashon Island (April 24), Bremerton (April 25), Southworth (April 26) and Kingston (May 8).
