The Alaska Department of Transportation is now accepting comments on their proposed Alaska Marine Highway (AMHS) schedule for fall, winter, and spring of 2015 and 2016. The budget for AMHS has been reduced by 5% and they are proposing to significantly reduced service in Southeast Alaska, particularly in Wrangell, Petersburg, Ketchikan, and Prince Rupert by taking the M/V Taku out of service.
It’s very important that AMHS planners and schedulers know how the ferry schedule will affect your family, businesses, regional economies, and the Southeast lifestyle.
