It’s that time of year again. Be sure to read this bulletin from WSF regarding fare increases that begin next Sunday.
Please be advised of several changes to the fares on Washington State Ferries that will take effect on May 1, 2016:
A passenger fare increase of 1% and a vehicle/driver fare of 2.5% will go into effect on all domestic sailings. May 1 also marks the date that the Peak Season surcharge goes into effect for non-commuter vehicles and drivers; multi-ride products will not be affected by the Peak Season surcharge. Peak Season begins Sunday, May 1 and goes through Friday, September 30.
Also on May 1, the definition of over-height vehicles will change from 7’6″ to 7’2″. Vehicles between 22-30 feet long that are over 7’2″ tall will be charged the over-height fare. The purpose of this change is to align the height threshold with the actual overhead clearance on the side vehicle decks of most ferries.
