The company put into service two new motor boats plyig between Wat Sribunruang pier and Pratunam for a trial for a week now.
Each boat has the capacity to accommodate up to 120 passengers at a time and it is fitted with environment-friendly engines which are quiet and emit little smoke. There are also 150 life jackets on board to ensure safety for passengers.
One of the passengers, Kiratiporn Khao Sawang, told a Thai PBS reporter that she felt safe travelling in the new boat. She said that it was safer for passengers to embark and disembark from the mid-section of the boat.
