The AMHS Reform Initiative is addressing a broad range of ferry operations, management, and governance issues, including the following key questions:
- What can be done to generate more operating revenue while still providing affordable service?
- How can Alaska provide a more predictable and sustainable flow of necessary public funding to support the AMHS?
- What operating efficiencies could be implemented to reduce or control costs while still providing essential levels of service?
- In planning for the long-term sustainability of AMHS, how do we define “essential service” for the widely varying needs of the 33 communities served directly by the system?
