No Water Taxi service during dock construction in early August; Riders encouraged to consider travel options, attend open house June 21 

Crossposted from The Captain’s Blog

Riders of the King County Water Taxi will need to make other transportation plans for up to 10 days starting in early August.

Both routes of the popular foot and bike ferry service will be suspended while their crews move the Water Taxi’s float on the Seattle waterfront from the south end of Colman dock to the north end (toward the fire station and Ivar’s restaurant).

The temporary move is part of a larger project by the state to renovate Colman Dock. The Water Taxi will move back to a new and improved facility at the south end of the dock in about a year and a half.

That improved Water Taxi facility will have a weather-protected waiting area as well as elevators and a pedestrian bridge to the new Washington State Ferries terminal and its amenities.
