Pasig River ferry system gets another boat
The Pasig River Ferry Service is set to launch a new 50-seater ferry boat recently donated by a private firm in a bid to increase ridership amid limited public transportation in Metro Manila.
Metropolitan Manila Development Authority chair Benhur Abalos said the donation of real estate developer New San Jose Builders Inc. is “expected to augment the shortage of ferry boats for our day-to-day operations.”
The Pasig River Ferry Service can serve a total of 455 passengers on its 11 currently operating vessels. —MARIEJO S. RAMOS
