Ferry Tokitae entering service on Mukilteo route

BREMERTON — The newest Washington state ferry is undergoing sea trials and scheduled to go into service June 15 on the Mukilteo-Clinton route.

The 144-car Tokitae (toh-kee-tay) was accepted Monday by Washington State Ferries.

The Kitsap Sun reports its addition will allow the oldest ferry in the fleet, the 60-year-old Evergreen State, to be retired.

Tokitae is a Salish word meaning “nice day, pretty colors.” It’s the second of three ferries being built by the Vigor Industrial shipyard in Seattle for $384 million for all three.
