Sharing the ride during your commute benefits you in two ways: money saved in gas and time saved in ferry lines. Washington State Ferries’ Vanpool and Carpool programs reward those who coordinate their commuting. Washington State Ferries gives preferential loading on specific sailings for vanpool or carpool groups who meet program conditions. Visit WSF Rideshare Permits for more information about how to simplify your ferry commute.
Take the bus to and from the ferry and reduce your passenger fare by as much as 42% over driving your car. Or, in King County, you can use a vanshare to travel the first or last leg of your trip when traveling on a ferry, train, or bus.
