Snow a major factor in 2019 state ferry ridership drop; New storm schedules ready to go for 2020 winter snow

SEATTLE – For the first time in seven years, annual ridership aboard Washington State Ferries declined in 2019, dropping by 800,000 customers – 3.2% – to 23.9 million. Severe winter weather, construction in and around ferry terminals and increased ferry and transit options, are considered the main reasons for the decrease.
