(Click the map to be taken to a larger version.)

Bicyclists may bypass the ferry lane of vehicle traffic and go to the tollbooths to buy tickets. All cyclists must proceed through the tollbooths, even those who arrive by transit. Cyclists use the green bicycle lane through the holding area to access the bike staging area. 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. 

Walk on passengers, pedestrians, people with disabilities
Walk-on passengers go through the passenger building second floor, accessible by two stairwells and two elevators, to buy tickets at the ticket window (when staffed) or from ticket kiosks. To board the vessel, walk-on passengers go through the turnstiles and onto the north balcony to board via the overhead passenger walkway.

Drop off/pick up passengers
There are short-term parking spots for people to pick up and drop off passengers along First Street, marked with a 15-minute time limit. To get to them, continue east on First Street, line up in the left lane, and continue past the entrance to the holding lanes. There are also two ADA pick up and drop off spots inside the transit area/WSF staff parking lot. One has a 15-minute limit and one a 30-minute limit.
