Water taxi service to be suspended for up to one week starting Aug. 7

The King County Water Taxi will suspend all service for up to one week starting Monday, Aug. 7, as the downtown Seattle terminal is relocated to accommodate construction of a new terminal.

During the service suspension, the downtown Seattle terminal will be relocated from the south side of Colman Dock/Pier 50 to the north side. When service resumes, both Water Taxi routes will use this temporary site through fall 2018 while a new terminal is built on the old site. The exact date of when service will resume is not known and will depend on construction.

While service is suspended, riders are encouraged to use one or more of the following options:

Buses: Metro’s Rapid Ride C Line and routes 21, 37, 55, 56, 57, 120, and 125 connect West Seattle to downtown Seattle. Route 116 connects the Fauntleroy Ferry Terminal to downtown Seattle. To accommodate extra passengers while the Water Taxi isn’t running, Metro will provide added service on these routes during the closure. For help planning Metro bus trips, call 206-553-3000.

Telecommuting and alternate work schedules: Those whose employers allow working from home or flexible schedules should do so to avoid peak commute times.
