​​New Schedule Reflects Traffic Patterns, Passenger Requests For Later Departures
 (MANNS HARBOR) – After studying Pamlico Sound traffic patterns and hearing from passengers wanting later evening departures from both terminals, the North Carolina Department of Transportation’s Ferry Division has adjusted the summer schedule for its Cedar Island-Ocracoke route.

“This schedule gives us greater efficiency during the day, and offers people on the mainland the chance to catch a ferry to Ocracoke after work, which is something they’ve been requesting,” said Ferry Division Director Ed Goodwin. “We’re confident that we will still have the capacity to get all of our Pamlico Sound passengers where they want to go in a timely manner.”

The new Cedar Island-Ocracoke summer schedule, effective May 19, will be as follows:

Departing Cedar Island: 7 a.m., 10, 1 p.m., 4, 6:30.

Departing Ocracoke: 7:30 a.m., 10, 1 p.m., 4, 9.

Reservations on all Pamlico Sound routes are highly encouraged, especially during the summer months.
