The Pansodan-Dala jetty is the only gateway for the local people in southern Yangon— Dala, Twantay, Kawhmu, Kungyangon townships and some townships in the Ayeyawady Region to link themselves with the commercial hub of Yangon City.

According to the Delta Division of Inland Water Transport (IWT), the Cherry Pansodan-Dala ferry and Wahdan-Dala Z-craft schedules have reduced the operation routes during the Thingyan Festival holidays in 2021.
Usually, the operation times of the ferry are reduced during the Thingyan holidays, according to the department. After the Thingyan festival, the water ferries will operate as usual.
“Yangon Pansodan-Dala ferry schedule has reduced its operation routes during Thingyan Festival. It will start from 13 to 19 April. The new programme during the water festival will be convenient for visitors from across the country and pilgrims to visit Yangon city. Ticketing staff and crew will assist with the safety of the passengers. After the Thingyan holiday, the water ferry and Z-craft service will resume their normal schedules as usual,” said Daw Zin Myo Han, the manager from Dala Jetty.
The ferry service runs typically 46 crossings per day. Between 13 and 19 April, the service on Pansodan-Dala will be reduced to 18 times per day, with the ferry running from 6 am to 6 pm. Similarly, the operation times of Wadan-Dala Z-craft ferries will be cut from 15 to 6. The ferry service operation is from 8 am to 5 pm.
The Pansodan-Dala jetty is the only gateway for the local people in southern Yangon— Dala, Twantay, Kawhmu, Kungyangon townships and some townships in the Ayeyawady Region to link themselves with the commercial hub of Yangon City. Three motor vessels named Cherry 1, 2 and 3, donated by Japan, have been running 46 times per day for 30,000 commuters approximately. The port is one of the crowded places in the town.—Naing Lin Kyaw(Dala)/GNLM
