(Seattle, WA)  --  Starting Saturday, kids in Washington younger than 18 can ride public transit for free.  The Washington State Ferry system is also included.  It's part of the Move Ahead Washington transportation package.  On ferries, it applies to kids 18 and under who walk on, or are passengers in vehicles.  Drivers of vehicles going on ferries who are 18 and younger will still pay the adult vehicle and driver fare.  About a million-and-a-half children ride the ferries every year.
