Perdue is right on this, infrastructure was never intended to nor ever will be to be "self Supporting". Just as we all pay towards the highways,commuter rail and airports and ports, we all should continue to support the ferry system. I will agree with Tom about the out of control overtime costs and Nepotism, that needs to be cleaned up and from what I have read that is taking place albeit slowly.
The Bayview/Aurora ferry could be eliminated or service drastically reduced. The Ocracoke/Cedar Island ferry could stand for some reduced service on weekdays.
