    • Abstract:
      The ferry system functions as a set of marine highway links in the metropolitan transportation system. Since bridge alternatives have been virtually eliminated from consideration for cross Sound travel due to cost and public dissent, the ferries are an important mode for the foreseeable future to connect highway routes on each side of Puget Sound. Besides this "highway" function, the ferries are also a high capacity transit mode because of their ability to transport large numbers of people who would otherwise take a vehicle across the water. Each of the jumbo ferries can handle 2,000 walk-on passengers. Passenger-only ferries accommodate 250 to 320 passengers. In addition, the ferries connect to transit service on both sides. When these modal transfers can be timed properly, the ferries provide a seamless transportation trip. Washington State Ferries (WSF) makes it easy for carpools and vanpools to access the ferries. Registered non-SOV vehicles can use an exclusive "fast lane" to avoid traffic congestion at terminals and receive priority loading.
