Ferry system seeks comment on 2013 summer schedule

Associated PressAugust 9, 2012 

Alaska transportation officials are seeking public comment on the proposed 2013 summer ferry schedule.

The Alaska Marine Highway System announced Wednesday it had posted next year's proposed summer season on its website for review.

Ferry officials say it gives communities served by ferries the chance to weigh in and make suggestions for adjustments if significant community events are planned.

The ferry system will accept written comments and will conduct teleconferences for oral comment on Aug. 28.

Southeast communities can comment at a 10 a.m. teleconference that day, and Southwest and Southcentral Alaska communities will get the chance at a 1:30 p.m. hearing.

The Department of Transportation says its 11 ferries serve 35 communities.

Anchorage Daily News is pleased to provide this opportunity to share information, experiences and observations about what's in the news. Some of the comments may be reprinted elsewhere in the site or in the newspaper. We encourage lively, open debate on the issues of the day, and ask that you refrain from profanity, hate speech, personal comments and remarks that are off point. Thank you for taking the time to offer your thoughts.
