Price of ferry fares to rise by two percent, beginning May 1

Fare increases of two percent for passengers and 2.5 percent for vehicles and drivers will go into effect May 1 on all domestic sailings. A 2.5 percent increase on all international fares will also occur.

This is the second part of a two-part increase approved by the Washington State Transportation Commission.

In addition to these increases, the peak-season surcharge will also be in effect from May 1 through Sept. 30 for vehicles and drivers paying full fare. Multi-ride products will not be affected by the peak-season surcharge.
