Washington State Transportation Commission (WSTC) Ferry Fuel Surcharge
FERRY FUEL SURCHARGE

Welcome

The Washington State Transportation Commission (WSTC) would like your input on utilizing a fuel surcharge for the state ferry system to temporarily address ferry fuel costs that exceed the budget. While the WSTC has never implemented the fuel surcharge, recent rises in fuel costs have increased the likelihood that the surcharge may be needed.

Under current regulation the surcharge could be activated upon Commission approval. If activated, the surcharge would be added to the current ferry fare and could be in an amount from 2.5% - 10% of the fare, depending on the funding gap the surcharge is addressing.
