The relaunching of the Pasig River Ferry is indeed a welcome development in helping decongest traffic in Metro Manila, however, we hope that this will be a continuing effort because as we recall this had been done in the past and then subsided. We should be doing things in continuity and stop the “ningas-kugon” attitude that we are most of the time known for. Kudos to Mayor Isko and Mayor Vico of the City of Manila and Pasig City respectively.Aksyon Kalikasan – Green Party of the Philippines
MANILA — The Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA), with support from 2 local government units, relaunched on Tuesday the ferry service in Pasig River, which would provide an alternative mode of transport as Metro Manila grapples with crippling traffic.
The MMDA provided 7 boats for the service, while the Pasig and Manila governments donated 2 boats each.
Pasig Mayor Vico Sotto and Manila Mayor Isko Moreno joined Transportation Secretary Arthur Tugade, Sen. Christopher “Bong” Go, MMDA Chairman Danilo Lim and other officials at the Pasig River Ferry’s relaunch.
Fares for the ferry will be waived until the end of January 2020, benefiting some 40,000 passengers, said the MMDA.
Sa tingin ko, ito na ang magiging pinakamatagumpay na paglalakbay ng #PasigRiverFerry.— Vico Sotto (@VicoSotto) December 9, 2019
Masaya ako na nakapag-ambag ang pamahalaan ng Pasig dito. Gagamitin ng MMDA ang dalawang 57-seater natin (M/B MUTYA NG PASIG 1 & 2)
