Intended to ease the traffic and help commuters get to their destinations fast, the Metro Manila Development Authority has relaunched the Pasig River Ferry transport system offering a test-free ride for one whole month as directed by President Rodrigo Duterte.

In Monday’s re-launching ceremony, MMDA chair Danny Lim, DENR Secretary Roy Cimatu, Senator Bong Go, Manila Mayor Isko Moreno, Pasig Mayor Vico Sotto, and Philippine Coast Guard officials graced the occasion seen here doing President Duterte’s signature fist bump.

In the words of Senator Sonny Angara, Oversight/AdHoc Committee chair, relaunching of the river ferry “is one alternative that to me is easier and faster to implement, and that is the Pasig River ferry system. I have mentioned this before after seeing the potential of the Pasig River ferry as a way to ease traffic in the metropolis.” (BENJAMIN CUARESMA/IAMIGO.CNS)

  1. Sana po ma-enganyo natin ang mga Lopez na me-ari ng Rockwell na mag-kusa or mag-donate ng construction para sa isang Ferry Station sa tapat or sa malapit ng Rockwell Makati at ganun din ang mga Ayala na magkusa or mag-donate ng construction dun din sa malapit or tapat ng The Circuit Ayala Malls sa Makati. Para kaming galing d2 sa kabilang dulo (Escolta) ay magkaroon ng isang convenient access papunta sa mga lugar na yun na hindi na dadaan sa EDSA. Malaking tulong din ito sa negosyo sa loob ng mga malls na yun.
