Unlimited Travel: November 1, 2004 - March 31, 2005
September 17, 2004
Passes cost $500 for adults, $400 for seniors over 65 years old, and $250 for children between 5-11 years old, and are good on all vessels and all routes. The pass also allows additional discounts for cabins and vehicle passage. This year's winter schedule will again feature regularly scheduled service in the Inside Passage, trips from Bellingham and Prince Rupert, and travel in south central Alaska (Valdez, Cordova, Seward, Homer and Kodiak).
"Since 2001, the Marine Highway has offered the unlimited pass for 'Alaska time,' the winter season between October 1 and April 30," said Sharon Gaiptman, AMHS marketing manager. "The vast majority of our ridership during the winter is Alaska residents who rely on their ferry system to get to local events, school sports, festivals, and to go Outside on holiday vacations. This year's offering is the same as last years a direct response to feedback received from those who purchased passes in the past."
The "All You Can Travel" Pass is non-transferable and discounts cannot be combined with other offers. The popularity of the pass continues to grow. In the three years since its inception, sales have gone from less than 20 sold to almost two hundred.
Passes are on sale from September 15 through October 31 online at www.FerryAlaska.com or by calling central reservations at 907-465-3941 (1-800-642-0066/toll free). The AMHS website contains more information about the /All You Can Travel Pass/ including restrictions, and provides community links with more information about festivals and activities.
