New service sharing Pier 50

May 28, 2011

SoundRunner service will begin sharing Pier 50

On Tuesday, May 31, the Port of Kingston will begin passenger-only ferry service between Kingston and downtown Seattle, where it will use Pier 50.

The SoundRunner will operate one round-trip in the morning, arriving at Pier 50 at 7:40 a.m., and one trip in the afternoon, departing Pier 50 at 5:25 p.m.

This change will not affect King County Water Taxi service, but you will notice the addition of a passenger waiting area on the south side of Pier 50 for SoundRunner passengers. Information agents at Pier 50 will help coordinate and direct passengers to be sure everyone gets to their intended destination.
