SITKA, ALASKA Beginning May 11th and continuing through the summer, Sitkans will be able to ride the fast ferry Fairweather to and from Juneau 5 days a week. People are calling this summer’s ferry schedule one of the best to hit Sitka in years.
But city officials fear, if Sitkans don’t use the improved service, they may just lose it. So, the City is kicking off an intensive marketing campaign to encourage ridership. It just happens to coincide with a similar effort on the part of the Alaska Marine Highway.
