Alaska Marine Highway System officials have released the 2018-19 winter schedule and are accepting reservations for winter travel from Oct. 1 through April 30.

To book reservations, get information on fares and more, call 1-800-642-0066 or log on to

The winter schedule was released in the wake of a public comment period in July, during which communities and individuals could review and comment on the proposed schedule, and alert AMHS to significant community events.

Ferry system officials said the schedule has been customized to meet community needs as much as possible, given the limited budget and maintenance requirements for the aging ferry fleet.
