Pasig River ferry system gets another boat

/ 05:08 AM March 05, 2021

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.”
