PORT­LAND, Maine — Op­er­a­tors of a pas­sen­ger ferry be­tween Port­land, Maine and Yar­mouth say ad­vance book­ings are up com­pared to last year.

In news re­ports, Bay Fer­ries Ltd. pres­i­dent Mark MacDon­ald said ad­vance ticket sales are up at least five-fold from 2016.

About 35,500 pas­sen­gers rode the ferry last year, far be­low the rid­er­ship of 90,000 to 100,000 in 2007-08.

MacDon­ald said if the book­ings hold, then pas­sen­ger vol­umes could at­tain lev­els reached be­fore the ferry ser­vice was can­celled in 2009.
