Given the diminished budget and Alaska ferry service cuts this summer, unsupported speculation is that historical winter programs like Drivers Travel Free - may be a thing of the past.
So far there has been no word as to whether Alaska Marine will increase fares or whether they will continue the "Driver Travels Free Oct Thru April" policy employed over the last few years.
Slightly later than in previous years, the Alaska Marine ferry schedules are expected to be released toward the end of August.
The schedules will cover the period October 2015 through and inclusive of April 30, 2016.
