Reminder for Washington State Ferries users – a fare increase kicks in on Thursday (May 1st), same day the peak-season vehicle surcharge takes effect. You can check fares for any date using this lookup tool on the WSF website – for example, if you’re riding between Fauntleroy and Vashon as a walk-on tomorrow, it’s $5.10, and then $5.20 starting Thursday; a standard vehicle and driver on the same trip will pay $17.25 tomorrow, $22.05 Thursday.

  2. I don’t think that’s right. I’ve been paying (for driver and car) around $10.50 to go from Fauntleroy to Southworth (stop at Vashon). And I think that goes up to like $12.50 (+/- a few). Look at the ferry site and it should tell you.

  3. Ok I went and looked at the site and holy crap, it’s more expensive to go from Fauntleroy to Vashon than Fauntleroy to Southworth……..interesting……..

  4. That’s because the fare to Vashon is roundtrip – they don’t collect again on the return, while they do at Southworth.
