The Metropolitan Manila Development Authority on Friday announced the resumption of normal operations of Pasig River Ferry Service following a two-day suspension due to water lilies.
The agency’s Clearing Operation Unit hauled a total of 1,350 cubic meter of water hyacinths.
MMDA chief information officer Sharon Gentalian said the ferry is operating to and from Pinagbuhatan (Pasig) and Escolta (Manila) from Mondays to Saturdays, 6 a.m to 7 p.m.
Operational ferry stations are as follows: Guadalupe, Hulo, Valenzuela, Sta. Ana, Lawton, Escolta, San Joaquin and Pinagbuhatan.
Passengers are reminded to follow COVID-19 health and safety protocols such as wearing a face shield and face mask, undergoing temperature check, and filling out a manifest and commuter information sheet before each ride.
The ferry serves authorized person outside residence (APOR), health workers and government employees who need to report for work free of charge while the general community quarantine status is being enforced in Metro Manila.
