Community Water Taxi survey extended to Feb. 21

The Community Water Taxi has developed a survey for folks to share information about their use of the San Juan County inter island ferry. Due to an email distribution issue, the Community Water Taxi online survey deadline has been extended to February 21 as several key community groups did not receive the survey link in a timely manner. If you haven't yet had time to respond, please consider lending your voice and experience to this collective effort to raise awareness of our county's critical need.

Here are links to the survey:

There are 28 questions. Some are conditional, so you may not need to answer them all. It should take about 6-8 minutes to complete. The questions will cover demographics, impacts to medical access, business/employment and personal travel, as well as a few summary questions.

The results of this survey will be shared with anyone who provides their email address in the survey (not a requirement to take the survey), the public, and County and State governments to help present a more complete picture of the current crisis in San Juan County and islanders’ specific ferry service needs.

If you have any questions, please reach out to us at communitywatertaxi@gmail.com

We thank you for your thoughts and time.

The Community Water Taxi is a group of concerned island residents looking for solutions to an inter island walk-on water taxi service within San Juan County when Washington State Ferries can not perform this need.
