Accommodating the New Commuter.


Ferries 2024 is part of our continuing advocacy effort to promote marine transit as part of a viable alternative to single occupant vehicle commuting.

As commute patterns change, passenger ferry service provides the flexibility for communities to adapt to these changes quickly, affordably and sustainably.

And passenger vessels provide communities with an attractive alternative to traditional mass transit that add to the quality of life enjoyed by residents and employers alike.

Ferries 2024 is intended to help transit agencies, economic development agencies, community leaders and elected officials determine whether marine transit is right for their community.

The program has been developed to help community leaders determine what type of marine transit might best suit that community’s particular applications. 

We hope you can join us in Seattle on October 8th, 2024
