MMDA Extends Pasig River Ferry Operating Hours Starting December 1

The Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) today announced the extended operating hours of the Pasig River ferry system starting December 1 to accommodate more passengers, particularly shoppers going to Divisoria and Escolta in Manila.

According to MMDA Chairman Francis Tolentino, the Pasig River ferry will operate from 5 a.m. to 6 p.m. or an additional one hour from the previous schedule.

"We are doing this in anticipation of the Christmas rush. I am optimistic this will help ease traffic jams, specifically in areas where shopping malls and bazaars are located," Tolentino said.

In addition, the operating hours of the ferry system will be further extended starting December 16, the start of the traditional Simbang Gabi, to service passengers who will attend masses at the Sta. Ana and Sta. Cruz churches in Manila.

"The ferries will start its operations as early as 4 a.m by December 16 to offer traffic-less transportation to churchgoers," Tolentino said.

Currently, the Pasig River ferry system has nine boats which can accommodate a maximum of 30 passengers each. Fare ranges from P30 to P50 depending on the distance travelled.

The ferry service, which was revived last April, has six stations from Pinagbuhatan in Pasig City to Intramuros in Manila.

"River run" - Article published in The Philippine Daily Inquirer ( on March 9, 2014

The revival of the Pasig River Ferry comes across as an afterthought, but it's a welcome idea just the same in view of the traffic gridlock feared to occur when an estimated 15 road projects get underway all at the same time in Metro Manila. (As it is, the traffic situation is a recurring nightmare.) read more.

"Try breaking a leg..." - Article published in Manila Bulletin ( on March 7, 2014

Chairman Francis Tolentino's version of a "Ferry" boat ride was not pretty but it certainly showed what a "Can Do" attitude can do. The MMDA head was clearly trying to send the message down the Pasig River that we need the ferry system and it can be done if the administration simply prioritized it. In the meantime, I would suggest to Chairman Tolentino to unload the van and replace them with monobloc benches that can be bolted on to the floor of the tug. Then he can go to Shell Canvass or to Divisoria and buy gauge 200 tarp, a few 3/4" GI pipes and have a canopy made. I'll even volunteer to supervise it!

Government officials who display a willingness to listen as well as a "Can Do" attitude deserve our support. Keep it up Chairman. read more.

"Ibawal din ang alak" - Editorial published in Pilipino Star Ngayon on January 17, 2013

HINDI lamang baril ang dapat ipagbawal sa election time kundi pati na rin ang alak. Kung gaano kahaba ang gun ban ganundin kahaba ang ipairal sa pagbabawal sa alak. Ito ay para matiyak na magiging mapayapa ang pagdaraos ng May 13, 2013 elections. Kapag ang alak ay hindi nailagay nang maayos sa tiyan, gulo ang idinudulot. Marami nang katibayan na ang alak ay nagiging ugat ng karahasan. At kung ang alak ay isisilbi sa panahong may election, maaaring maging ugat ng mga kaguluhan. read more.

How can you expect MMDA Chairman Francis Tolentino to solve our traffic frenzy? Other government sectors especially the LTO and LTFRB must come into the picture to help and support this fight. But it seems that no one is lending a hand. The public only sees Chairman Tolentino doing all the work. Susmariosep! The LTO, LTFRB, DPWH, DOTC and the LGUs should start working together with the MMDA to get rid of this horrific problem. read more.
