The state Transportation Com-
mission has proposed a 2.5 percent increase in ferry fares.
The increase was recommend-ed by the ferries division within the Washington State Department of Transportation and forwarded to the seven-member commission, which sets ferry fares. The commission is currently seeking public comment on the proposed fare hike, which will extend through Nov. 15, when the commission will hold a final public hearing in Seattle. The commission is expected to take action at the Seattle hearing.
The public can comment on the proposal by sending an e-mail to the state Transportation Commission at firstname.lastname@example.org. Residents can
also call the commission at (360) 705-7070 or write to it at P.O. Box 47308, Olympia, WA 98504.
