Sen. Collins Celebrates Casco Bay Lines Terminal Renovations

PORTLAND, ME (August 15, 2022) – U.S. Senator Susan Collins participated in a ribbon cutting ceremony at the Casco Bay Lines terminal in Portland to celebrate the completion of more than 18 months of construction and significant renovations to the terminal building, site, and marine infrastructure critical to accommodating growth and enhancing the overall long-term operational capabilities of Casco Bay Island Transit District (CBITD).  

In addition to Senator Collins, the event included FTA Region 1 Deputy Administrator Michelle Muhlanger, CBITD General Manager Hank Berg, and other project and community stakeholders.  Senator Collins is the Ranking Member of the Transportation Appropriations Subcommittee and worked to secure nearly $8.5 million in federal funding for the three phases of this project to improve passenger services and safety.  

CBITD is the transit operator serving the islands of Casco Bay and operates passenger, vehicle, and freight service year-round.  Casco Bay Lines ensures that passengers have safe, dependable and reliable transportation, and is considered the “lifeline” for the residents of the islands.  Casco Bay Lines’ ferries transport more than one million passengers, 35,000 vehicles, and over 500,000 pieces of freight annually.  Casco Bay Lines also delivers the U.S. mail and transports island students to and from Portland.
