Washington State has the largest ferry system in the US. Check out
http://www.wsdot.wa.gov/ferries/ for details. Some routes have fees and
some do not. It partly depends on the direction and if you are bring a
motor vehicle on board. For example you can walk on without a fee if your
destination is to the east, but if you drive your vehicle a fee is charged.
Bicycles are free going east bound. If however, you are headed west bound,
there is a fee for vehicles, people, and bikes. It gets even more
complicated if you are in the San Juan Islands going from island to island.
A simple fee=yes/no doesn't work. I would be inclined to omit the tag
rather than trying to tag the various combinations. Maybe a fare tag
pointing to a web site would be better.
