While motorcycles are not, by Washington Administrative Code (WAC 468-300-700), a preferential loading category of users, they are often loaded prior to automobiles for operational and staging purposes. Arrival at the dock after vehicle load has commenced requires motorcycles to wait until all cars have been loaded for the next motorcycle loading opportunity. Motorcycles should proceed, while on the dock, at no more than 10 mph. Use caution when car decks are wet. The following information details specific staging for this terminal:
Motorcycle Fare Purchase/Redemption(Fauntleroy/Southworth)
Purchase tickets at the auto tollbooths, at the passenger booth, at the kiosk inside the terminal waiting room, or online in advance.
Motorcycle Fare Purchase/Redemption (Fauntleroy/Vashon)
Roundtrip Fares Purchased at Fauntleroy, Southworth, kiosk, or online in advance.
When the gated lane is open during high traffic volumes, motorcyclists may access the dock in the HOV lane but must stop at tollbooth to process fares.
Loading order: bicycles, motorcycles, vehicles, late arriving motorcycles as space permits.
On most departures, early arriving motorcycles will be directed to the front of the dock beside the terminal building. During commute hours and weekends motorcycles may receive special staging instructions from seller or traffic attendant.
WSF requires trucks with a gross vehicle weight of over 80,000 lbs and/or over 8’6” wide to have “travel approval” before crossing any of our routes. Vessels on this route have a limited height clearance and trucks may be loaded out of sequence.
Trucks that have a gross vehicle weight of over 80,000 lbs but are hauling less than 80,000 lbs will need to provide a weight slip.
Please fill out our Oversized/Overweight Vehicle Travel Request Form by downloading a pdf version of the form and fax it to us at (206) 515-3773. Please allow three business days for completion and approval. You can contact us at anytime for status updates at (206) 464-6400 (Seattle).

Bicyclists may bypass the line of traffic. All Vashon-bound bicyclists must stop at the vehicle tollbooth. Fauntleroy-bound bicyclists may continue down to the front of the dock (there is no payment for passengers or bicycles traveling from Southworth to Fauntleroy), bypassing the booth.
Bicyclists should arrive 20 minutes prior to departure time to be loaded at the beginning of loading process. If a bicyclist arrives after vehicle loading has begun, they will be loaded at the end of the load. Riders should walk their bikes on and off the ferry to avoid injuring passengers. There is one rack that holds 8 bikes.
Carpool/Vanpools must be ticketed and in line 10 minutes before scheduled sailing time to receive preferential loading. If you are late, you will be loaded on a space available basis at the end of the loading.
