Vessel Replacement Surcharge Request for Motion by County Commissioners

The goals of this proposal were as follows:

  • Incentivize punch cards
  • Set surcharge amounts that are proportional
  • Approach the surcharge methodically by applying percentages instead of randomly choosing dollar amounts
  • Reduce, to the extent possible, major shifts in ridership habits that could affect parking or reduce revenue
  • Consider deck space occupied
  • Eliminate fares ending in $0.50


As a reminder, the Board of Commissioners will vote on Monday, and the public is welcome to attend.

When: Monday, June 18, 2018, 10:30 a.m.

Where: Commissioners’ hearing room, 1800 Continental Place, Mount Vernon, WA 98274
