Chebeague Transportation Company
Chebeague Transportation Company offers barging services for vehicles and commercial freight from April 1st (weather permitting) to November 30th each year. Barging originates on Chebeague Island; Cousins Island, Yarmouth; and Yankee Marina, Yarmouth. The barge is 43 feet by 24 feet in size and can handle all types of vehicles.
Using the Service
Barging should be reserved at the CTC office at least two weeks in advance to ensure available space. CTC barges from two mainland locations - Cousins Island and Yankee Marina. Barging occurs on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and (occasionally) Wednesdays from Cousins Island. Other barging dates must be scheduled from Yankee Marina at an additional fee. At booking, the customer will be advised of the approximate time the barging will occur and may be sent an invoice. Prior to the actual barging date the customer will be provided specific barging time for the barging date.
Unless prior arrangements have been made, full payment must be received prior to barging, either by mailing/delivering the payment to the CTC office or by paying the Captain. Payment must be in cash or by check. CTC does not accept credit cards.
On a space available basis, customers may remain with their vehicle during the barging. Children are not allowed on the barge. Alternately, customers may leave the vehicle in the designated staging area. The CTC crew will load and unload the vehicle as needed.
Commercial freight should also be scheduled in advance. Customers who have a significant amount of commercial freight can either load the freight or have the CTC crew load the freight. In this case, there will be a surcharge based upon the time necessary to load the barge.
