Ferry ticket prices to Southern Islands going up from May 2

Channel NewsAsia 11 Apr 07

SINGAPORE : Beginning May 2, passengers will have to pay $4 more for ferry tickets between Marina South Pier and the Southern Islands. The new charges for adults will now be $15, while children will have to pay $12.

The operators of the ferry services York Launch says there are two reasons for the increase - the low number of passengers on the routes to Kusu and St John's Islands, and the berthing cost of its ferries onto these islands. It says the previous operator, Sentosa Leisure Group, used to absorb the berthing cost which ranged from $5 to $10 for each boat, and 50 cents for each passenger.

York Launch takes over the operation of ferry services on May 2.
