You pay fare, but this kind of transport is increasingly hard to find. Best consult the website of the port authority of the port of your choice; they should be able to give some information, and redirect you to the relevant contact addresses. Also, you may want to PM Gelli; he doesn't fly for his travels, so I suspect he knows more.
