No matter when you go to MV you need ferry reservations if you’re taking your car. You need tickets for your car and yourself as well as any passengers in the car. If you’re a walk on passenger then all you need are tickets, no reservations. Since the Steamship Authority (known as the SSA) is the only ferry service that accommodates cars that’s the focus of this entry.
