Water taxi now available for congested sports-filled weekend
Last-minute good news if you are coming from West Seattle to any of the games this weekend, West Seattle water taxis will operate their normal weekend schedule in support of the fans headed to the games.
Water taxis were expected to dry dock this weekend for maintenance. However, there has been a change of heart.
“The picturesque and congestion-free trip between West Seattle and downtown Seattle takes as little as 10 minutes,” said King County Metro’s spokesperson Elaine Porterfield.
Free route 773 and 775 water taxi shuttles in West Seattle will also operate, carrying riders to and from Seacrest Dock connecting with all Water Taxi arrivals and departures until 7:00 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. Evening Metro bus service between downtown Seattle and West Seattle is available on RapidRide C Line and routes 120 and 125.
“With the Seattle Mariners playoff schedule in hand, Metro’s Marine Division worked the past several days to identify available captains and crew to provide the service this weekend,” Porterfield said. “Previously planned maintenance and a temporary suspension of service will be rescheduled at a later date.”
