The Maine State Ferry Service is proposing to charge out-of-state passengers more to travel by ferry to North Haven, Vinalhaven, Frenchboro, Islesboro, Swan's Island and Matinicus than the ticket price charged for year-round residents. Some island officials say that will have an undue impact on summer residents. But the Maine Department of Transportation, which oversees the ferry service, says Maine residents and businesses already support ferry service through the state's Highway Fund — and so year-round island residents should pay less.
Should out-of-state passengers pay more than year-round islanders for ferry service to the mid-coast islands?
