The Cherry ferry leaves for Dala across Yangon River.

Cherry Ferry on the Yangon Pansodan-Dala route operated under Inland Water Transport (IWT) will run a reduced schedule during Thingyan holidays to facilitate public transport.
The Pansodan-Dala Port is the only gateway for the local people in southern Yangon — Dala, Twantay, Kawhmu, Kungyangon townships, and some parts of Ayeyawady Region link with the commercial city hub of Yangon.
The service contributes to the health and socio-economic development of the local community.
The ferry on the Yangon Pansodan-Dala route was plying to and from the ports with 42 plies per day. Dala Port is available between 5:30 am and 7:30 pm, while the Pansodan side is open between 6 am and 8 pm.
Yangon Pansodan-Dala ferry service has been running regularly. The ferry schedules were changed, balancing the COVID-19 situation and the number of commuters.
During the Thingyan holidays, people might see downticks in the passenger rates and freight forwarding service.
Therefore, the ferry will run 20 plies between 6 am and 7 pm at Dala Jetty and between 6:30 am and 7:30 pm at Pansodan Jetty.
The reduced schedule has been declared on the notice board at the ticket office entrance.
The ferry schedule will go back to normal after the Thingyan holidays. The ferry costs K100 per passenger.
The ferry ensures the security of a smooth and sound transition for the commuters. — Aung Myint (IPRD)/GNLM
