PORT TOWNSEND — Frequent ferry riders on the Port Townsend-Keystone route may get their wish for an earlier run.
Following the urging of a group of commuters at a Tuesday open house on a proposed Washington State Ferries fare increase, officials said a daily ferry leaving Port Townsend at 6:30 a.m. is a possibility.
“It looks like we might be able to arrange that,” said Tim Caldwell, Port Townsend Chamber of Commerce general manager and chair of the Ferry Advisory Committee for the Port Townsend terminal.
Though comments strayed to other ferry concerns, the evening open house was one in a series of public meetings held around Puget Sound by Washington State Ferries and the Tariff Policy Committee to address a proposed 12.5 percent increase on most ferry fares.
