OFFICES AND OFFICERS - STATE - WASHINGTON STATE TOLL BRIDGE AUTHORITY - FARES ON PUGET SOUND FERRIES - SCHOOL DISTRICT EDUCATIONAL TRIPS - AUTHORITY OF TOLL BRIDGE AUTHORITY TO PROVIDE FREE PASSAGE OR REDUCTION OF TARIFFS OR CHARGES
OFFICES AND OFFICERS - STATE ‑- WASHINGTON STATE TOLL BRIDGE AUTHORITY ‑- FARES ON PUGET SOUND FERRIES ‑- SCHOOL DISTRICT EDUCATIONAL TRIPS ‑- AUTHORITY OF TOLL BRIDGE AUTHORITY TO PROVIDE FREE… 1. The Washington toll bridge authority does not have the power to exempt public school children from fares on the Puget Sound ferries when said public school children are riding a public school bus to and from educational trips in the course of their schooling. 2. Same :  The toll bridge authority does however have the authority, with the approval of its consulting engineer, to effect a reasonable reclassification and reduction of charges for this class of user.  What would be an appropriate or reasonable classification is a question of fact to be determined by the toll bridge authority.
