Back to Class! Currituck Ferry Switches to School Year Schedule Aug. 3 Tuesday, August 01, 2017

CURRITUCK – It may seem hard to believe, but summer break is ending this week for some Currituck County students. That means the Currituck-Knotts Island ferry route will be switching to its school year schedule on Thursday, Aug. 3.

The fall schedule adjusts Monday-Friday departure times and adds an additional run in order to get Knotts Island students to and from their schools. The schedule will run until school ends on June 7, 2018.

The new Monday-Friday schedule will be as follows:

  • From Currituck: 6, 9 and 11 a.m., 1, 3:30 and 5:30 p.m.
  • From Knotts Island: 6:50 and 10 a.m., Noon, 2, 4:30 and 6:20 p.m.

The schedule for weekends and holidays will be:

  • From Currituck: 6, 9 and 11 a.m., 2 and 4 p.m.
  • From Knotts Island: 7 and 10 a.m., Noon, 3 and 5 p.m.

The Currituck-Knotts Island route was established in the fall of 1962 specifically to ease the commute for Knotts Island students. It saves students and parents from taking a long, circuitous route through Virginia to get to and from the Currituck mainland.
