TO ease traffic congestion during the holidays, the Department of Transportation, through the Maritime Industry Authority (Marina), will launch the first phase of the Metro Star Ferry system between Manila and Cavite next month.

Marina said the new water transport system would have its dry-run on the first week of December, with trips between terminals in Cavite City Hall or Sangley Port to SM Mall of Asia or the Cultural Center of the Philippines Complex.

Phase 2 will add a terminal along the Pasig River near Escolta Street and Plaza Lawton in Manila.

The water transport system is spearheaded by Marina, in cooperatio n with the Philippine Ports Authority, Philippine Coast Guard, Philippine Navy, Department of Public Works and Highways, Metropolitan Manila Development Authority, Laguna Lake Development Authority, and the local government units of Cavite and Manila.




Companies such as Shogun Ships Co. Inc., Starlite Ferries, Inc., Seaborne Shipping Lines Inc. and Pinoy Catamaran Corp. showed interest in operating the routes.
