WSF drops fees for youth passengers

Posted

Washington State Ferries is no longer charging fares to most riders who are 18 or younger.

The fare-free policy started Saturday, Oct. 1 for youth who are riding as a passenger in a vehicle and those walking on.

WSF is reminding travelers that teenage drivers must still pay a fare; drivers under 19 years old will continue to pay the adult vehicle and driver fare.

Ferry officials said youth tickets will no longer be available at self-serve kiosks or online. Youth walking onto a ferry will still need a ticket or a valid ORCA card to board at terminals where one is currently needed. 

Terminal employees at the ticket booth can issue the free-fare youth tickets, which will be valid for two hours.

People traveling in a vehicle with youth between 6 to 18 will need to stop at a tollbooth to be accounted for and processed by WSF staff.
