Singapore and Malaysia Boost Ferry Links

Singapore and Malaysia Boost Ferry Links

The Maritime Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) and Malaysian Johor Port Authority have signed an agreement to improve the ferry service between Singapore’s Changi Ferry Terminal and Tanjung Belungkor in south-eastern Johor, The Straits Times reports.

MPA chief executive Andrew Tan and Johor Port Authority general manager Muhammad Razif Ahmad signed the Memorandum of Understanding during the annual meeting of Singapore’s Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong and the Prime Minister of Malaysia Najib Razak.

The first MOU signed between the two port authorities back in 1993 established a regular ferry link between the two terminals, running twice on weekdays and four times on weekends and public holidays.

The new MOU will allow the service to be expanded, and possibly re-located to Singapore’s HarboutFront.
