The San Juan County Ferry Advisory Committee (FAC) will be reviewing the fall ferry schedule at its meeting on February 14 and will be considering suggestions for fall 2013. Comments are welcome either at the meeting or prior to the meeting via email to firstname.lastname@example.org. The fall schedule was in effect from Sept. 23 through Dec. 29, 2012.
Compared to the summer schedule, during fall there was one sailing to Sidney versus two, and one less boat assigned to our routes. Additional service is always desirable, but the schedules are tightly packed and resources are limited -- both by available boats and budgets. For comments to be constructive, requests for additional sailings or added stops need to be balanced against reductions elsewhere.
