The proposed changes are minor revisions ...

The proposed changes are minor revisions to the current weekday schedule, but will require additional staffing on the Fauntleroy dock to make the schedule work as planned, said Ray Deardorf, the planning director at WSF.
"We are banking on having additional traffic control on the Fauntleroy side," Deardorf said.
The proposed schedule calls for one of the ferries to begin just 5 minutes earlier in the morning - 4:40 a.m. instead of 4:45 a.m. - with several other sailings throughout the day adjusted by 5 minutes as well. Deardorf noted the planning committee wanted to build some recovery time into the schedule in the middle of the day and eliminated the 11:35 a.m. run between Southworth and Vashon to do so.
"The philosophy was to start peak 5 minutes earlier and count on it ending 5 minutes later to give additional loading time," Deardorf said. "No peak trips were cancelled."
The proposal calls for two additional ferry employees to help with traffic control on the Fauntleroy dock as well as a member of the state patrol to provide additional traffic control assistance.
"The legislature is aware of the proposal, and it will be up to them to put it in the budget," Deardorf said.
...
Deardorf noted the cost of the two ferry employees would be $116,000 annually, and Fitzgibbon said the cost of the state patrol cadet would be $150,000.
...
Even though the proposed schedule changes are minor, Deardorf noted that he feels it is important to host another meeting, in part as a follow-up to the meeting WSF held in October.
"We feel there might be some other issues with the schedule that we have not thought of," he said.

Seattle Times: Schools dreading wake of ferry cuts

Registered van pools and public-transit buses are the only vehicles that can board a state ferry for free , said Ray Deardorf , a planning director for Washington State Ferries.
School buses pay the same rate as commercial vehicles , and ferry officials say they already get a fare break because they don't have to pay for extra passengers.
Closer to Seattle , Bainbridge Island and South Whidbey Island use the ferry system every school day for transporting students with special needs to other school programs.
Vashon Island schools use ferries extensively.In 1999 , they paid for about 400 round-trip passes.
