About the Green Ticket

Why the extra dollar? To reduce our footprint we invest your extra $1.00 into certified carbon credits (see our credits on the registry). Carbon credits offset the ferries’ fuel emissions through initiatives such as forest conservation and renewable energy.

Make a difference and reduce your own carbon footprint!
