Supporting the Communities of: Whittier, Cordova, Valdez, Chenega Bay, Tatitlek
In an effort to provide current and relevant information specific to each of the communities served, this "playbook" is 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 AMHS 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.

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.
