Pierce County is currently planning an updated schedule to be released in 2020. The exact schedule changes are not yet determined. Pierce County is committed to incorporating input from a recent ferry schedule customer survey and the Anderson Island Citizen Advisory Board's ferry committee into a revised schedule.

2015 Waterborne Transportation Study Most recent report with recommendations for improvements to the Pierce County Ferry System. The study included: population and demographic changes projected through 2034, service changes that would enhance island economy and livability, financial sustainability of the ferry system and 14-year capital needs of the ferry system.
2013 Ferry Service Evaluation The purpose of the 2013 Ferry Service Evaluation was twofold: first, to evaluate several proposed service changes that have been suggested, and second, to evaluate the results of recently implemented and historical service changes that have been put into effect. The Pierce County Ferry System will use this study to determine future potential schedule changes to better serve its customers.
Fourteen-Year Ferry Program The 14-Year Ferry Program (2020-2033) is a ferry system planning document required by state law. Pierce County embeds this document annually with the County's Six-Year Transportation Improvement Program (TIP).
