Penang Forum welcomes the news that Prasarana Malaysia Bhd which is owned by the Ministry of Transport is allocating RM90m to improve the cross-channel ferry service in Penang. Penang Forum applauds the minister of transport for taking this important step.
The people of Penang Island and mainland Penang are suffering because of political malaise. Do those in power in Putrajaya realise how much distress is endured by every user of the Penang ferry service, everyday, not just on festive weekends? When did you last queue for an hour to board the ferry?
The reduction in the ferry service is a betrayal of the public interest.
