WELCOME TO CBIA!
Casco Bay Islands Alliance held it's annual meeting on 9/16/2020 via Zoom. We hope to continue our in person annual meeting next fall. Please go to the News & Events tab to view the 2020 CBIA Annual Meeting Minutes.

Did you know that Casco Bay Lines has an easy to read app "Boats 4" which will provide you with up-to-date ferry schedules? Go to your app store and download the app entitled "Boats 4 Casco Bay Ferry Schedules".
There is also a tracking system available through CBL to provide real time and predicted arrival information of ferries (as well as other public transportation). Although it works on an iphone via a 3rd party mobile app, it is better used on a tablet, laptop and desktop computer. Go the following link to access the tracker map and more info: https://www.cascobaylines.com/about-us/southern-maine-transit-tracker-smtt/

How do I select a charitable organization to support when shopping on AmazonSmile?
