What to name the new baby (fare)?

PORT ANGELES — The foot ferry service to Victoria and San Juan Islands is adding a half-price companion fare this year — and it’s looking for a name for the special fare.

Victoria Rapid Transit Inc., owners-operators of the Victoria Express and Victoria Express II, will give 50 percent off the companion fare purchased along with a full-fare ticket for the same sailing.

The discount will be available only to residents of Clallam, Jefferson and San Juan counties and Vancouver Island, said Nell Clausen, marketing and sales director for Port Angeles-based Victoria Rapid Transit.

The full Victoria Express service among Port Angeles, Victoria and Friday Harbor will operate between May 28 and Sept. 5, with Port Angeles-Victoria runs continuing until Sept. 25.

Name the fare

Victoria Rapid Transit is asking for help in naming the resident discount fare, and will be awarding two separate $300 cash prizes to the people who come up with the best moniker.

One $300 prize will be awarded to a winner in Clallam County or Jefferson County, and the other $300 will be awarded to a winner on Vancouver Island or the San Juan Islands.

“We are looking for a catchy and clever name to call our companion discount fare,” Clausen said.
