Ferry Advisory Committee

The Ferry Advisory Committee (FAC) is a five member board, appointed by the Board of County Commissioners, that provides input to Washington State Ferries (WSF) regarding the Port Townsend/ Coupeville route.  The FAC reports on problems experienced by ferry users and ferry communities, reviews the allocation of vessels to runs, schedules, and the adequacy of terminals, participates in the development of ferry fares, fare policies, and route service levels, and assists in developing the WSF Long-Range Plans for capital and operating investments. 


The FAC meets on the second Wednesday of every odd month at 1:00 p.m.
