King County Water Taxi service suspended for up to a week

SEATTLE — The King County Water Taxi is out of service for up to a week starting Monday.

During the closure, the downtown Seattle terminal will be moved from the south side of Colman Dock/Pier 50 to the north side.

When service resumes, both Water Taxi routes will use the temporary site through fall 2018 while a new terminal is built on the old site.  It will also be on a revised sailing schedule.

The temporary move is part of a larger project by the state to renovate Colman Dock.

The Water Taxi will move back to a new facility at the south end of the dock in about a year and a half.

The new Water Taxi terminal will have a weather-protected waiting area, elevators and a pedestrian bridge to the new ferry terminal.

While service is suspended this week, bus riders in both service areas can expect to see heavier-than-usual passenger loads on trips to and from downtown.
