Deadline today for ferry survey

Port Angeles-Seattle route among preferences listed

Puget Sound Regional Council is asking for responses on a survey listing potential Puget Sound passenger-only ferry routes which include a Port Angeles-Seattle connection.

The deadline is today. The survey is at tinyurl.com/PDN-ferry survey.

It will provide information for long-range planning over the next 20 to 30 years, according to Gil Cerise, program manager, in a phone interview.

Among potential terminals and routes are a route between Port Angeles and Seattle and terminals in Sequim and Port Townsend.

The survey is part of a study funded by the state Legislature to assess potential passenger-only routes throughout the 12 counties of Puget Sound, said Rick Olson, director of communications, in an email.

A report is expected to be presented to the Legislature in January, Cerise said.

An overview of the results is planned to be presented during a webinar in late summer.

The survey asks for responses about a preferred route or terminal. Those with preferences not listed are asked to include them in their responses.

Most of the routes and terminals in the survey have been suggested at some point in the past, Olson said.

“The study will assess the potential of routes and terminal locations,” he said. “Depending on feedback from the survey, routes and terminal locations may be added.”

Operators of passenger-only ferries in other counties have included transit agencies (Kitsap), special districts (King) and private operators (planned within King County on Lake Washington and Lake Union).
