Ferry commuters can voice opinion about Whidbey service changes

A proposal to reduce service to Whidbey Island ferry routes will be one of the topics at a series of community meetings scheduled in November.

Washington State Ferries is proposing reducing late-night service on the Clinton-to-Mukilteo ferry route and reducing the length of two-boat service on the Port Townsend-to-Coupeville route as part of an effort to come up with millions of dollars worth of possible cuts.

In addition to the budget proposal, other topics that will be broached include community marketing initiatives, advertising update, summer ridership information, an update on the Olympic Class ferries and a performance update on the Kwa-di Tabil Class ferries that serve the Port Townsend-to-Coupeville ferry route.

The Whidbey meeting is at 8 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 29 in Freeland at Trinity Lutheran Church.
