The Seberang Perai City Council (MBSP) welcomes the suggestion to expand water taxi services on the mainland.

MBSP mayor Datuk Azhar Arshad said it is a good suggestion as it can boost tourism both on the mainland and island.

“The water taxi services will also offer a convenient and environmentally friendly alternative, easing congestion on the roads and providing seamless connectivity,” he said when contacted by Buletin Mutiara today.

However, Azhar said a comprehensive study for the implementation of the water taxi services needs to be done first.

“From there, we will decide whether we should implement the services on the mainland or not,” he said.

Previously, Penang Chief Minister Chow Kon Yeow said the water taxi services to Seberang Perai would depend on the level of support received for its implementation on the island.

However, Chow said it is subject to the decision of the MBSP as the project falls under the jurisdiction of the city council, not the state government.

Chow added that the water taxi services is an initiative by the Penang Island City Council (MBPP), so the service will be provided only on the island, for now.
