Pierce County Ferry riders may now request a 60-day extension for Value Pass tickets.
A Value Pass ticket is for five trips, and costs $21.80 for passengers/walk-ons, $39.70 for motorcycles and $73.40 for vehicles.
To qualify for an extension, the Value Pass must have remaining rides and an original expiration date of March 6 or later.
Extensions can be requested by visiting www.pierceferrytickets.com and selecting “Refund Request.”
Full instructions on how to obtain a Value Pass extension are available at www.piercecountywa.gov/valuepassextension.
The Pierce County Council passed an ordinance on April 7 allowing the Ferry Administrator to authorize the extension. Value Passes are normally valid for 40 days. The extension is authorized on a temporary basis due to reduced ferry ridership from compliance with the statewide “Stay Home, Stay Healthy” order.
