Proposed Ferry Fare Increase

Across-the-board ferry-fare increases are being proposed by the Washington State Transportation Commission. The increase is necessary to ensure the state meets the ferry-fare-revenue target set by the Legislature in the recently enacted 2013 - 2015 transportation budget. The commission is seeking public comment on the proposal during the coming weeks and plans to make a final decision during its meeting at 3 p.m. Tuesday, July 30, at Union Station in Seattle.

The commission’s proposal is based on recommendations from Washington State Ferries and members of the citizen-based Ferry Advisory Committee on Tariffs. The proposal includes a number of fare and policy changes, which are summarized below. Detailed information on the proposal, including fare tables, is available on the commission’s website:
