We regret that there is no longer public parking anywhere near the Mukilteo Ferry Terminal, so you cannot plan to be a walk-on.

Car Pooling

V.I.P parking will be available for carpools (3 or more per car)

When you register you can check a carpool-interest box - if you need a ride, or are willing to give one to a fellow attendee. We will email at least a week before SWU.2019 with information on others in your area who have indicated interest in carpooling. You will be responsible for following up to arrange carpooling.
