    Pasig River Ferry Terminals, Fares, Trip Schedules

    Now here's something interesting and needed to at least offer some relief from Metro Manila's clogged streets: the revived Pasig River Ferry system that should've been resurrected a long time ago. Details of various stations show below:

    UPDATE: This Pasig River Ferry service was discontinued in 2011. Government is mulling reviving the service in 2014 to aid in declogging the Metro Manila of heavy traffic but it needs additional capital and investors to revive it.

    UPDATE February 17, 2014: accroding to this news report, the MMDA together with the DOTC will resurrect the Pasig River Ferry in April 2014 to ease the traffic woes due to the 15 road projects in Metro Manila. Proposed routes are Guadalupe to Intramuros in Manila and Guadalupe to Pinagbuhatan in Pasig City.


    a total of 15 modern stations currently being built along the river to comprise the new transport system that would cut travel times in more than half particularly from Marikina to Manila

    1. Plaza Mexico
    2. Escolta
    3. Quezon Bridge
    4. South Nagtahan
    5. PUP
    6. Sta. Ana
    7. Lambingan Bridge
    8. Hulo
    9. Valenzuela
    10. Guadalupe
    11. Bambang
    12. Napindan
    13. Marcos Bridge
    14. Riverbanks
    15. Marikina Bridge



    this project was planned a long time ago but shelved same number to time. However, this time it's all go judging from the visible construction of modern airconditioned terminals with floating pontoons that go along with the rising and ebbing of the tide of the once pristine and beautiful river that inspired the muses of yore.

    something to look forward to heh? :)

    UPDATE:

    This Pasig River Ferry service was discontinued in 2011. Government is mulling reviving the service in 2014 to aid in declogging the Metro Manila of heavy traffic but it needs additional capital and investors to revive it.

    Hey! This is a good news! Sana matapos na sya at masubukan. Mas maganda pa nga ang river system natin kesa sa Singapore.

    Hello, Tutubi. Yes, I've heard of the ferry's start of operation. When are you going to organize that Pasig River tour? Please, if you do, count me in. I felt envious of your tour in Cubao. I wanted to do it alone for quite sometime but didn't have the nerve to do it. I hope I was with your group then...

    By the way, congrats sa bagong blog template. Maganda (though pleasing pa rin sa mata ko ang black)...

    By the way, I had added you to my blogroll. Thanx... :)

    yesterday was my first experience to ride the ferry! it was great. the ferry was clean, air conditioned and with a big LCD tv playing some movies. you'll see different sights including the malacaƱang palace. fare was 30pesos from guadalupe to quiapo.

    I plan to explore the Pasig ferry when I get back to Pinas this February. I plan to board it in Guadalupe and alight in Escolta. From Escolta, what else is there to go and do? I plan ro start early in the morning and explore Escolta vicinity until way over sunset.

    guys, any idea if the Pasig River Ferry is still operational? Got a chance to pass by Guadalupe last Sunday, but the doors are closed. Could it be they are now just operating from Monday to Friday? Please confirm.
