Price of ferry fares goes up 2.5 percent starting Saturday
New ferry fares will go into effect Saturday, Oct. 1.
In August, the Washington State Transportation Commission approved a series of changes to Washington State Ferries fares.
Beginning Saturday, general fares will increase by 2.5 percent, a new fare category will be available for vehicles of less than 14 feet, a 25-cent per-ticket surcharge — dedicated to construction of new boats — will take effect, and the use of bicycle permits will be eliminated; passengers paying with monthly passes, multi-ride cards, or an ORCA ePurse will be allowed to bring bicycles on board without additional charge.
In the San Juan Islands, only passengers using multi-ride cards would be exempt from the bicycle surcharge.
