Starting today, it’s going to cost you more to commute by ferry in and around the Puget Sound—unless you have a small car.
Walk-on ferry passengers will pay 15 cents more to sail from Seattle to Bainbridge Island. Passenger fares are going up 2 percent are vehicle fares are increasing by 3 percent to help the ferry system meet its revenue target.
But for those who drive onto the ferry, it pays to have a small car. Cars shorter than 14 feet will receive a discount.
