Hard to believe, but no post was ever written that linked to the 2010 County fare ordinance, which added a flat $3 charge to all fare categories. Here’s a link to that ordinance. It’s located on the public, easily searched Ferry Documents Archive as well as on the county’s website.
This post is is belated, but since fares are once again being discussed by LIFAC, PLIC and others, it seems a good idea to make it as easy as possible to find and read the official ordinance defining fares.
Two more recent changes to the basic fare ordinance (2013-043, which reduced children’s fares to zero and specified needs-based fares, and 2014-017 that started credit card use and charges) did not remove the surcharge. All County ordinances and resolutions,by year and title, can be found here.
