Changes coming to Edmonds-Kingston ferry schedule

Commuters can expect a few changes to the Kingston ferry schedule this fall.

Starting Sept. 30, the first boat leaving Monday-Friday from Kingston will depart at 4:45 a.m., 10 minutes earlier than its previous time.

A 4:55 a.m. Saturday sailing from Kingston will be eliminated, so the earliest departure from Kingston on Saturday will be at 5:15 a.m.

“There’s some big benefits to moving this as it will serve more people,” said Ian Sterling, a spokesperson for the ferries. “That sailing normally does not serve very many people that early on a Saturday morning, but it will add a late night sailing at the other end of the day on Saturdays where we’ll be able to serve more people.”

A 12:20 a.m. crossing will be the last boat leaving Kingston on Friday nights/early Saturday mornings as well as on Saturday nights/early Sunday mornings.

Sterling said ferry officials have already contacted some of the region’s largest employers to inform them of the coming schedule changes.
