​The school boat will begin running on 9/4.  The ferry leaves Chebeague at 7:05 AM and Cousins when the school bus arrives - approximately 3:05 PM.  The service is weekdays only and will run on school vacations and school cancellation days (weather permitting).

The CTC Cousins Island Lot has been full with annual parking permit holders many times this summer. Therefore, daily parking customers who plan to park at Cousins may be unable to do so. Daily parkers should not plan on getting access to the Cousins Lot before 8 AM and may be unable to park there then depending on the number of vehicles in the lot. To be safe, daily parkers should use our Route One lot. Annual parking permit holders will be our priority.

Weekday worker permit holders may park at the Cousins Island Lot on weekends only on a "space available" basis.

CTC is very pleased to announce that Amanda Campbell has joined our team as a full-time employee! Amanda joined the company in 2012 at the age of 19 as a part-time deckhand. She took advantage of our benefit program to achieve her Captain’s license. Amanda went on to Maine Maritime Academy where she earned an Associate Degree in Small Vessel Operations and currently holds a 100 Ton Master’s License.
Upon graduation, Amanda went to work at Casco Bay Lines – but we lured her back to Chebeague because we knew how much she could contribute to the Company.
Since there currently are not full-time captain hours available, Amanda will be a deckhand as well as a captain at CTC.
Please join us in congratulating Amanda in her new role at CTC. We are so pleased to have her on our team!

Reminder - free boat days will be 12/9 and 12/16.

The last day of school boats will be June 21st. On 6/21 the 7:05 AM school boat leaving Chebeague will run as usual. However, there will be no 2:50 PM boat leaving Chebeague. Because of early release of students, there will be a ferry leaving Chebeague at 11:05 AM and leaving Cousins at 11:20 AM.
There will be no more school boats until the fall 2017 school session starts. Refer to the CTC schedule for our normal ferry trips.

Due to ongoing and repeated violations to our parking policies, CTC will begin towing violators in the very near future. Violations include: parking without a valid parking sticker or ticket, overdue parking tickets, and those who are trying to use another parking sticker (as a loaner). Annual parking stickers are not transferable and can only be used by one vehicle. Loaner cars are only allowed if the vehicle with the sticker is being repaired - not to allow multiple vehicles under one sticker. 
We will be increasing our surveillance of both lots. Both lots will post the telephone number for people who have towed vehicles to call.
