Fare Increases Take Effect on October 1

A ride on a ferry will cost a little more beginning next Tuesday. Here is the notice posted earlier today by WSF:

ALL ROUTES:

Fare increases and policy changes that were adopted by the Washington State Transportation Commission on July 20, 2013 will take effect on Oct. 1:

•Increases of 2 percent on passenger fares and 3 percent on vehicle fares

•Increases of 4.1 percent on Anacortes/Sidney B.C. vehicle and passenger fares

•Completes a three-phase plan that was started in 2011, providing reduced fares for smaller vehicles. In this final phase, the vehicle fare for cars less than 14 feet will be charged 70 percent of the vehicle fare charged for standard vehicles (14 feet to less than 22 feet).

•Eliminates the motorcycle oversize surcharge. Vehicles that currently pay the motorcycle oversize surcharge will pay either the under-14-feet-vehicle fare or, if they are under 8-feet in length, the motorcycle/driver fare.

•Increases the youth discount (for ages 6 through 18) from the current 20 percent off the full fare, to 50 percent off the full fare.

•Multi-ride passenger passes will be available on ORCA.
