The Washington State Transportation Commission adopted increases to our current ferry fares

Fares will go up 2.5 percent for vehicles and 2 percent for passengers on October 1, 2019, and again on May 1, 2020. 

All fares will also go up 25 cents on May 1, 2020, for the capitol surcharge dedicated to the construction of new vessels. 

The WSTC also authorized an increase in the reservation no-show fee up to 100 percent of the one-way fare paid, based on a standard-sized vehicle. No decisions have been made yet about this increase, and any decisions will be dependent on further community feedback.

Fares are going up to ensure $407 million in revenue by June 30, 2021, as required in the recently passed two-year state transportation budget.
