Anacortes to Sidney, B.C., ferry canceled for today, Friday

The Associated Press

SEATTLE — Ferry riders can expect long waits on some Puget Sound routes as the ferry system shuffles boats and changes schedules in response to vessel problems.

The ferry Tacoma has been out of service for repairs since Tuesday when it lost power on the busy Seattle-Bainbridge Island route.

A ferry was shifted from the Edmonds-Kingston route, causing delays for those riders.

In addition, the ferry service has canceled international service Thursday and Friday on the run between Anacortes and Sidney, British Columbia.

The interim ferry chief, Capt. George Capacci, was scheduled to provide more information Thursday on repairs to the Tacoma and service changes.
