What was old is new again… At its height the “Mosquito Fleet,” provided transportation across the waters of Puget Sound. Consisting of passenger ferries operating 40 routes up, down, and across the Sound, the fleet used the region’s waterways to move passengers throughout the territory. Eventually the rise of automobile ownership and expanding road systems led to the demise of the fleet by the mid twentieth century.
Now those same road systems, jammed tight with traffic, have opened the door to the return of a the fleet in order to ease congestionfor waterborne communitiesin the Puget Sound region and around the country .
Please mark your calendars for October 10, 2018 when Philips Publishing Group will present its annual Ferries Conference in Seattle, Washington
Attendees will hear from public funding sources, public and private operators and consultants …all aimed at helping introduce, fund and operate ferry systems around the country.
We look forward to seeing you in October!
