AMHS Releases Summer 2016 Schedule
January 13, 2016
AMHS has planned a phased implementation of the new reservations system starting with the reservations call center, then followed by online reservations for summer travel. Implementation will continue with new hardware installations in terminals and aboard vessels through the spring. The system will be fully implemented by May 2016, at which time the current OARS reservation system will be retired at the conclusion of the winter 2015/16 schedule.
According to AMHS, making advance reservations is the best way to guarantee space for passengers and vehicles, and it allows the system to operate more efficiently. Fare information is available online or from reservations agents.
Reservations for the summer schedule are currently only being accepted through the Juneau Reservations Call Center by calling 800-642-0066. Online reservations for the summer schedule will be available in the coming weeks.
Sailing schedules can be reviewed online at FerryAlaska.com prior to contacting the call center. Reservations for the remainder of the winter schedule through the end of April are still available online.
The Alaska Department of Transportation and Public Facilities oversees 249 airports, 11 ferries serving 35 communities, 5,619 miles of highway and 720 public facilities throughout the state of Alaska.
