New Barra-Coloane ferry launches today
Taking 25 minutes and costing MOP 60 a head, the service provides a brand new link from one end of Macao to the other.
A brand new ferry route between Barra pier and Coloane pier will set sail today.
Running from Thursday to Sunday, the ferry will operate every 25 minutes. The first ferry departs from Barra at 10.30 am and the last leaves Coloane at 6.30 pm. Tickets cost MOP 60.
The route is operated by Shun Tak-China Travel Ship Management, and a Marine and Water Bureau spokesman said the company has already finished the testing, docking and other necessary assessments prior to launching the route.
Passengers must wear face masks during the voyage or else the ferry company has the right to deny boarding.
Barra pier was opened in March and has so far been a berth for vessels used for official purposes.
