Ferries Fact Sheet

Early last week, Torin Larsen, Chair of the Bainbridge FAC distributed a document prepared by the Ferry Advisory Committee Executive Council and the FCP entitled Ferries Fact Sheet. In addition to providing some very interesting information about the ferry system in general, such as: who rides the ferries; funding; facts about the fleet; and, tourism, this document also provides a good synopsis of the message legislators need to be hearing along with supporting information.

Please read this document yourself and share the information with members of your community. If you are writing letters to legislators or taking part in any of the lobbying efforts being organized by local Chambers of Commerce and the San Juan Islands Visitors Bureau, you will find the material presented here invaluable.
