Washington State Ferry Terminal, Seattle

The Washington State Department of Transport operates Washington State Ferries, which runs this vehicle ferry terminal in downtown Seattle. Many passengers commute across Puget Sound to work downtown each weekday. Here's a view of the ticket booths for departing vehicles.

The state ferry system is highly subsidized, with fares covering only 70% of operating costs. Capital costs run an additional 104% of the fares collected (annually).

The perspective is from the the top of the Smith Tower, a subject of a subsequent post.
