DOT&PF Seeks Public Review of Winter Ferry Schedule
Comments may be submitted through July 13, 2023

(JUNEAU, Alaska)—The Alaska Marine Highway System (AMHS) winter operating plan for October 2023 through April 2024 is available for public review. The Alaska Department of Transportation and Public Facilities (DOT&PF) plans to release a summer 2024 schedule for public comment after the winter schedule is finalized.

 AMHS will also utilize contract service as needed to provide passenger service for northern panhandle communities.

As with other ferry systems nationwide, the tight labor market continues to be a challenge for AMHS. The department is continuing an aggressive recruitment effort and working to keep the fleet in top operating condition through our annual shipyard overhaul schedule.

AMHS would like to hear about any need for special event scheduling; Organizers and communities should provide event names, dates, and locations, plus arrival/departure times needed for each special event.

Written comments are being accepted at, by email at, and by fax at 907-228-6873.
