We tried the Pasig River ferry within the very first week of its relaunch just to inspect it out. We boarded at Escolta as well as our goal was to reach Pinagbuhatan in Pasig. According to the personnel we talked to, however, the Pasig leg was closed for the day (only for that day), so we decided to end our trip at Guadalupe Station.
The boat left Escolta station at 11:45am as well as shown up at Guadalupe station at 12:30pm. That’s 45 minutes, overall travel time.
The boats are open-air vessels, NOT air-conditioned. We didn’t mind this at all. We were dreading the odor of the water, however we were surprised that it didn’t odor bad. however if you have a sensitive nose, well, this is the Pasig River, so you may also come prepared.
Overall, our journey was smooth as well as pleasant, as well as we see it as a fantastic alternate to land travel. It has to be noted though that it was recently reopened when we tried it as well as there weren’t that many passengers yet. The travel experience might modification significantly as more people utilize the service.
Anyway, at this point, any type of other means of transportation within the city is a welcome alternate provided the present web traffic conditions.
