Ticket sales strong for Maine to Nova Scotia ferry
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.
