(SitNews) Ketchikan, Alaska - Both passenger and vehicle traffic between Ketchikan and Prince of Wales Island increased over the same period last year during the first 15 days of October,  reports Inter-Island Ferry Authority general Manager Bruce Jones.

During this period 2,239 passengers traveled between Ketchikan and Hollis, and 382 vehicles were carried, a 6% increase in both categories. Year to date revenues, which include fuel surcharges, are 7% ahead of 2010, stated Jones.

Also announced was that effective January 1 through April 30, 2012 the IFA will not be charging a driver traveling with a vehicle. This is the IFA’s way of providing an incentive for users to bring their vehicle during the slower winter/spring period, according to Jones.
