The average price we paid for fuel went down over the past 7 days. Effective tonight, August 8th, we are changing the fuel surcharge from 6.1% to 5.3%. We will continue to reevaluate the surcharge every 7 days.
On March 14th, 2022, Cross Sound Ferry imposed a new fuel surcharge on all fares. Fuel prices have been extremely volatile, and the price we pay for fuel has more than doubled in the past few months. We regret the need to impose the surcharge, but Cross Sound Ferry can no longer absorb the entirety of the increased fuel prices. We will continue to share the impact of the higher costs and will split the increased cost with our customers. Our new surcharge will be a percentage applied to all published fares, and will be based on our most recent fuel costs. We will adjust the fuel surcharge up or down every 7 days.
NOTICE: New Fare Structure beginning on March 1, 2022.
In recent years, passenger vehicles have grown in length, width, and height. These larger vehicles have reduced our vehicle capacity per trip, thus negatively impacting our revenue. In an effort to more fairly charge vehicles based on size, we have created three categories of passenger vehicles, each with their own rate: Standard, Large, and Extra Large. A full explanation and our new rate sheet is posted on our website for your reference. More Info
We are also modifying our fare structure for trucks and commercial vehicles. Trucks and commercial vehicles over 23’ in length have historically had an OFF-PEAK fare on Mondays – Thursdays, and a PEAK fare on Fridays – Sundays, year round. Because PEAK and OFF-PEAK periods vary throughout the year, trucks and commercial vehicles will begin using the same PEAK and OFF-PEAK rules that passenger vehicles use. A full explanation and our new rate sheet is posted on our website for your reference. More Info
These changes are intended to balance supply and demand, and to more fairly charge vehicles based on their size. These changes also include a modest increase in our fares which is necessary due to the fast rising costs of labor, fuel, and other expenses.
Reservations made prior to March 1st, for dates after March 1st, will be honored at our current fares, assuming no changes happen to those reservations. If any changes are made to the reservation on or after March 1st, including departure time or date, or a change in vehicle type or length, our new fares will apply to the changed reservation.
As a reminder, our Cross Sound Ferry Rewards program allows customers to earn 5% of their ferry purchases for points that can be used for future travel. Our Captain’s Card Program allows customers to earn up to 10% added value to a preloaded debit card that can be used for ferry travel. When combined these programs save customers up to 15% for their travel with Cross Sound Ferry. We hope you are able to take advantage of these programs.

ABOUT OUR FARES
REMEMBER THAT AUTO AND DRIVER INCLUDES DRIVER! Don’t forget to subtract the driver when calculating additional passengers. For example, for a couple driving together, cost is auto and driver with ONE additional passenger.
Enjoy the luxury of being able to board the ferry first or arrive a little later for your reservation and not lose your spot. Once on the other side, be one of the first vehicles off the ferry, and arrive at your destination that much sooner. Priority Service pricing applies only to auto/driver tickets; passenger fares remain the same as Standard Fares. Some restrictions apply.
