SEATTLE -- The state Transportation Commission is holding five public hearings on proposed increases in ferry fares.

The first is Monday on board the San Juan Islands inter-island ferry. Others will be Wednesday in Coupeville, Thursday at Vashon Island, July 15 at Bainbridge Island and July 16 at Port Orchard.

The commission plans to make a final decision on fares at its July 30 meeting in Seattle.

The commission says increases of 2 to 3 percent this year and next are needed to meet the revenue targets set by the Legislature.
