Ferry Pass Card Information

Ferrypass

THE RETURN OF THE 10-RIDE FERRY PASS CARDS

The 10-Ride Ferry Pass cards have been re-instated and are now available for purchase at all terminals. Existing cards with value can continue to be used, and existing cards with no value can be reloaded at one of the Authority’s ticket offices. Online reloading capabilities will be added to the Authority’s website in early October.

The Ferry Pass Cards, which are valid on its traditional ferry service, bring back the convenience of carrying one card for multiple passengers. The cards were discontinued in March 2018 after it was determined that allowing multiple passengers to use the same card on a single trip was likely not in compliance with the state’s Passenger Embarkation Fee Statute, which mandates a $0.50 per ride surcharge that is paid to the port community in which the ferry trip originated.

We subsequently introduced the Lifeline Card, a five-ride card that was limited to one use per trip and was exempt from the embarkation fee. But after receiving numerous comments from customers about the inconvenience of carrying multiple cards per family, we chose to reintroduce the Ferry Pass Card to address those concerns.

The Ferry Pass cards are being sold with the previous per-ticket discounts in place but will now have the $0.50 embarkation fee added to each trip, or $5.00 for each card purchased or for a minimum reload.

The Lifeline Card program will remain active, giving customers the choice of the convenience of the Ferry Pass Cards or the extra savings of the Lifeline Cards, which will continue to be exempt from the embarkation fee. For more details, please visit www.steamshipauthority.com/lifelinecard.
