The N.C. Ferry Division hopes to save about $95,000 by changing the ferry schedule between Currituck and Knotts Island.
Starting Tuesday, the ferry will depart later on the early morning run from the Currituck side on weekdays. The ferry will leave Currituck at 6 a.m., 9 a.m., 11 a.m., 1 p.m., 3:45 p.m. and 5:45 p.m. It will leave Knotts Island at 6:50 a.m., 10 a.m., noon, 2 p.m., 4:30 p.m. and 6:30 p.m.
The division will offer one fewer trip daily on Saturdays, Sundays and during the summer when school isn't in session. Ferries will depart Currituck at 6 a.m., 9 a.m., 11 a.m., 2 p.m. and 4 p.m. They'll depart Knotts Island at 7 a.m., 10 a.m., noon, 3 p.m. and 5 p.m.
That change starts Saturday.
