In an effort to provide current and relevant information specific to each of the communities served, this "playbook" will be a go-to site for communities to view current service levels, vessel availability for the route (a factor of terminal compatibility and vessel characteristics), mitigation measures in place and as a way for DOT&PF to engage with communities on opportunities for service.
Please visit the main Reimagining AMHSBROKEN page for more information on how the system is charting the course to reliable service through incremental phases of system improvement--starting with system stabilization and moving into recovery and full steam ahead to reliable service. The program page will also provide up-to-date reporting on metrics related to the core AMHS system health elements of crew, vessels, and budget.
Tables have been updated to reflect the OARS Calendar as of 12/12/2022.

The events in the table below have been requested through comments on Public Input. Requested events are reviewed to inform scheduling and supplemental service decisions. Once an event has been reviewed, this table will describe the level of service that can be provided.

Recovering reliability will take time. As the course to this recovery is underway, engagement with the community will help strengthen future decision-making around allocating resources as they become available.
