Submitted by Jani Hitchens, Pierce County Council.
As the Pierce County Council embarks on its 2022-2023 Biennial Budget planning process, I want to make sure I have a clear understanding of how people are using the Pierce County ferry system.
To do that, I want to hear directly from ferry riders – whether you use it daily, once a month or only for vacations.
If the ferry impacts you, your family or your neighborhood please take a few minutes to share your thoughts by taking this short survey.
As the new representative of Pierce County’s District 6, I want to make sure I know what is working and areas where we could see improvement. Your responses will help me as I work with my colleagues on Council to bring forward a balanced budget that meets the needs of our communities.
If you have questions, please contact my office at 253-798-3308 or email me at email@example.com.
Take the survey here.

The system ran better before Hornblower took over The captain actually was kind and waited for people to get on they knew how to load first on and first off,they were kind and smiling to the customers,they watch the line to make sure they were no cutters and they didn’t allow offenders on the ferry they were in maintenance when they were supposed to they followed the schedule as they were supposed to,none of those things seem to be happening now and Ketron is affecting the system for Anderson Island who pays the county for public roads and access and I believe Ketron does not.

My husband and I live on Anderson Island and must take the ferry for groceries (weekly) and doctor appointments (monthly). From 12 until 2:30. the ferry is shut down so the afternoon ferries are very busy. To ensure a place on the ferry, it is necessary to get in line at least 1 hour early. Sometimes, you still end up in the “overflow” and have to wait 2 hours for your ride. I think that a great idea would be to reserve your spot. Anyway, we love living here and we’re willing to put up with the ferry for that privilege.
