Those who are among the 100,000 people signed up to attend this Saturday’s SR 99 tunnel grand opening festivities now have the option to sail in on King County Metro’s West Seattle Water Taxi. The Water Taxi will operate on a special event schedule from 5:55 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. to help folks coming from West Seattle and surrounding areas get to the action.

From Pier 52, riders can walk across the Marion Street overpass to access Third Avenue and board routes 1, 3, 4 or the D-Line, all of which take passengers to Seattle Center.
