(KETCHIKAN, Alaska) – Today, the Alaska Marine Highway System (AMHS) released its 2022 summer schedule, making a full year of ferry sailings available for booking for the first time and allowing travelers to make plans through September 2022. This full-year schedule also provides for better-scheduled maintenance of the ferry fleet and offers reliability for Alaskan businesses that wish to utilize ferry service as a component of their business model. The forward funding that allows this further seasonal scheduling is just one of many efforts initiated by the Governor’s Administrative Order 313 that formed the Alaska Marine Highway Reshaping Work Group, which recommended the forward funding concept.
The AMHS summer schedule covers ferry travel from May through September 2022. Reservations are available for booking at FerryAlaska.com, by calling 1-800-642-0066, or by visiting ferry terminal staff throughout the system. Fare information is available at FerryAlaska.com or from reservations agents.
The release of the 2022 summer schedule followed a recent public comment period. The comment period was an opportunity for communities and individuals to review and comment on the proposed schedule and alert AMHS to significant community events. AMHS accepts comments and suggestions at any time by email at email@example.com.
The Alaska Department of Transportation and Public Facilities oversees 237 airports, 10 ferries serving 35 communities, more than 5,600 miles of highway and 776 public facilities throughout the state of Alaska. The mission of the department is to “Keep Alaska Moving through service and infrastructure.”
