The Fort Simpson Chamber of Commerce is again petitioning the Department of Transportation to extend the operating hours of the MV Lafferty Ferry to 6 a.m. to midnight daily without creating a service break in the afternoon. The Chamber feels the increased service will benefit both businesses and residents.

Background information

Benefits of increased service hours include the ability for residents and businesses to start their day earlier when they have long trips for personal, business or medical reasons. Longer operating hours will also allow return trips to be made more easily in one day. The extension will also allow government departments to access the road system earlier in the day.
