WSF has made what’s looking like a significant change in the rule about arrival time for reservation holders. Beginning with implementation of the spring schedule, reservation holders must have cleared the ticket booth at least 30 minutes prior to their sailing. Any later than that and the reservation holder will be sent to the stand-by line. According to an article in the Island’s Weekly, this is already causing problems and we’re nowhere near the busy travel season yet.
Timing your arrival may get tricky. Last summer reservation holders who arrived too early were turned away in Anacortes. Now this summer you’ll lose your reservation if you arrive too late. Could be interesting.
