After running a pilot ferry project from Mumbai to Ratnagiri and Raigad this Diwali, the Mumbai Maritime Board (MMB) has decided to make it a permanent service.
Atul Patne, chief executive officer of MMB, said the ferry service got good response from people when it was operational for a week during Diwali.
“We will invite interested contractors to run the service permanently now,” Patne said. “The services we operated had a limited capacity of 35 passengers each, and we are looking at increasing the capacity too.”
These ferry services will leave from Mumbai’s Ferry Wharf (Bhaucha Dhakka) to Dighi in Raigad and Dabhol in Ratnagiri districts. The MMB will also run services between Dighi and Dabhol.
