AGO 1963 NO. 16 > Apr 15 1963

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.
