If you use Washington State Ferries, you’ll want to know about the fare increases approved today by the Washington State Transportation Commission. They include:
-On October 1st and then again next May 1st, vehicle fares will go up 2.5 percent and passenger fares will go up 2 percent
-Also on May 1st, a 25-cent increase to help fund building a new ferry
The commission also gave WSF the go-ahead to test two programs, a special passenger fare for low-income people, and “Good To Go,” already used to collect highway/bridge tolls. No details yet when/where those pilot programs will happen.
