Alaska Marine Highway System officials have released the 2020-21 winter schedule, covering ferry travel from October 2020 through April 2021.

With AMHS revenues significantly lower than expected due to the novel coronavirus pandemic, state transportation officials have produced a schedule with reduced service to most communities. Some service gaps will still exist from vessel overhauls and layups as a result of available funding, AMHS officials said.

Reservations are available for booking by phone at 1-800-642-0066 or at dot.alaska.gov/amhs.
