RALEIGH — The North Carolina Department of Transportation’s Ferry System is developing a long-range plan that will look ahead 30 years and is looking for input from its passengers.
Questions include, “If you rode the ferry today, how long did you wait to board the ferry?” and “How satisfied are you with the cleanliness of the vessel(s) you rode today, or that you typically ride?”
The plan is to make recommendations for vessel modernization, additions to the fleet and maintenance scheduling, consider how the system can better meet the needs of customers, as well as the region’s residents, communities, businesses and visitors, using new tools, new technology and new ideas, according to the state NCDOT.
The draft long-range plan will be provided upon completion for public review and comment. At the end of the public comment period on this portion of the plan, it will be refined and forwarded to the Board of Transportation for adoption.
