The Washington State Ferries (WSF) terminal at Fauntleroy has been an integral part of our community for decades. The Triangle Route serves Fauntleroy, Vashon Island, and Southworth in Kitsap county. In 2019, 1.74 million vehicles and over 1.33 million walk-on passengers were loaded and unloaded at the Fauntleroy terminal.

From Hadley Rodero, Strategic Communications Manager at WSDOT
Hello Fauntleroy, Vashon and Southworth community members:
At the end of 2020, Washington State Ferries began discussions with stakeholders about how best to engage communities in the Fauntleroy ferry terminal replacement project given current realities. Now we have turned the corner into 2021, we are excited to announce upcoming virtual community meetings. We hope you can participate to learn more about why the current terminal needs to be replaced, how project plans will be developed, and how the community can be involved over a multi-year planning process.
Virtual Meeting Details

These meetings are the first part of the engagement process, and we need your help to ensure we get connected to communities potentially affected by this project. Community engagement is key creating robust, informed, and productive conversations about the challenges facing the Fauntleroy ferry terminal and subsequently, the Fauntleroy/Vashon/Southworth (Triangle) route. Please share these meeting details with your networks; all are welcome.
If you are unable to attend either meeting, we will post the video recordings of both meetings online and take comments and questions by email. We will also be posting an application to be a part of the project Community Advisory Committee that will help guide the project over the next two years.
Please let me know if you have questions and I hope you’re able to join us for an upcoming community meeting.

On Monday, September 17th from 5-7 pm at the Fauntleroy Church (9140 California Avenue SW) Washington State Ferries will hold an open house to introduce a draft of the Long Range Plan.
Washington State Ferries (WSF) will release the Draft Long Range Plan for a 45-day public comment period and hold a second round of community meetings in Fall 2018. Come to an open house (pdf 718.04 kb) to review and comment on the Draft Plan
This plan projects a 37% increase in Fauntleroy/Southwroth riders by 2040, and a 19% increase in Vashon/Fauntleroy riders. The plan also appears to include enhancements to the Fauntleroy Ferry Dock and Terminal, and vessel replacement among other things.
