New Schedule for Guemes Ferry in 2009

T he Skagit County Board of Commissioners voted in a new Guemes Island Ferry Schedule for 2009. They kept late runs going to the island which theoretically I think is good, however in these times of budget crunching, this might have been a good place to save some dollars since there was a good deal of resistance to the late runs from the islanders. Here is the press release from the County, and here are the meeting minutes via streaming video. The new schedule, which goes into effect January 1st, 2009, is as follows:

Monday – Thursday 6:30 a.m. to 8:30 p.m.

Friday – Saturday 6:30 a.m. to 11:00 p.m.

Sunday – 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m.
