Fauntleroy Ferry Terminal Replacement Project – Online open house


Washington State Ferries (WSF) needs to replace the aging Fauntleroy ferry terminal to maintain safe and reliable ferry service for people who travel between West Seattle, Vashon Island, the Kitsap Peninsula and beyond. The terminal faces several challenges, including an aging structure that is seismically vulnerable and overdue for replacement.

The Fauntleroy ferry terminal serves nearly 3 million passengers each year.

Since beginning the project in 2021, WSF developed the project purpose and need statement outlining why this project is needed; possible solutions, known as alternatives, for replacing the terminal; and a process to evaluate those alternatives.

Hear from the project team at upcoming community meetings

WSF is hosting two virtual community meetings to present the information included in this online open house. Both meetings will include the same information.

This open house is your opportunity to learn about the project and prepare for commenting on the proposed alternative later this year. Before making any final decisions on how to replace the terminal, WSF will share and ask for community input on the proposed alternative.
