ALL ROUTES: WSF Extends Winter Sailing Schedule Through April 25

Washington State Ferries will extend its current winter sailing schedule through the end of next month due to declines in ridership from COVID-19. The spring sailing schedule will now tentatively begin on April 26 rather than March 29. Customers should continue following the winter schedule.

All vehicle reservations made for dates between March 29 and April 25 will automatically be cancelled. Customers still looking to travel during those dates will need to rebook new reservations based on the extended winter sailing schedule. Even without reservations, all passengers seeking to travel should be able to do so due to declines in ridership increasing the amount of available standby space.

Also, please note that the Customer Service call center is operating with limited service at this time as all agents are working remotely. Agents will not be able to take credit card information over the phone to secure reservations. However, they will be able to help guide customers through the process.

ALL ROUTES: WSF Offering Ticket Refunds and Suspending No-Show Fees

While WSF is unable to extend the 90-day period for tickets and travel passes at this time, customers who are unable to use tickets or travel passes because of COVID-19 concerns may be eligible for a refund for the unused portion of their fare. All refund requests can be submitted online. Please note that it may take longer than the typical 2-3 weeks to process your request due to higher volumes.

Customers with monthly ReValue passes who have curtailed their travel should cancel their account to avoid future payments. Multi-ride ReValue pass users should suspend their accounts to stop payments and reactivate their account when they resume travel. Any remaining rides on either pass are still valid through the expiration date after cancelling or suspending the account.

During this time, no-show fees will also be waived on the Anacortes/San Juan Islands and Port Townsend/Coupeville reservation routes until further notice. If you are unable to travel using your reservation or have to cancel your reservation at the last minute, you will not be charged a no-show fee. While no-show fees will automatically be waived, we ask that you please continue to cancel reservations online or by phone at 206-464-6400 if you know that you will not be traveling. This helps WSF plan for and respond to ridership needs.

Thank you for your patience and cooperation as we get through this challenging time, and we wish you safe and healthy travels.

WSF Encourages Customers to Purchase Tickets Online

To better protect our customers and employees against the spread of COVID-19, WSF encourages all customers to purchase their tickets in advance online. Pre-purchasing tickets minimizes the amount of contact and money exchange that needs to take place at tollbooths.  

To make it easier for customers to purchase tickets online, WSF has made all of its fares available, including those that normally require in-person purchase and proof of eligibility. These include youth, senior, and disabled fares.
