City Council Approves Ferry Service Deal

Wednesday, November 09, 2005
According to an AP story, the City Council of Portland, Maine, has given final approval to a deal that restores ferry service between Portland and Nova Scotia. Under the agreement, operators of the high-speed ferry known as The Cat will operate three days a week between Portland and Yarmouth, Nova Scotia. The ferry will continue to operate between Bar Harbor and Yarmouth on the other days. The ship holds 900 passengers and cruises at 55 mph, making the trip from Portland to Yarmouth in about five-and-a-half hours. The Portland deal came about when owners of the Scotia Prince abruptly ended a 35-year relationship with the city last spring. Until then, a decades-old agreement between the city and the Scotia Prince limited competition. Source: AP
