Businesses that provide commercial services to Ocracoke Island more than twice a week can apply for a vendor priority pass that is valid only for the Hatteras-Ocracoke ferry route.
Passes are issued at the beginning of each year on an as-needed basis.
Vehicles with the priority pass sticker displayed on the driver-side windshield can use lines labeled "PRIORITY" on both sides of the Hatteras Inlet or as a loading attendant so indicates.
Commercial vehicles holding a vendor priority pass are subject to terms and conditions set by the N.C. Ferry Division.
