Now ferry off your cars and other modes of transport to Alibaug, Mandwa with Roll-in, Roll off {Ro-Ro} straight from the Ferry Wharf starting this month, according to this report in Mumbai Mirror.

Don’t Row Your Boat!

The Ro-Ro car ferry from Mumbai to Mandwa {which is about 14 kilometres from Alibaug} will be rolled out this month, after a 150-crore project was announced by CM Devendra Fadnavais.

The ferry service is expected to cut down the travel time as one can now reach Mandwa in 30 minutes, as opposed to the three-and-a-half-hour drive from Mumbai. The frequency of the ferry will be as regular as every 30 minutes.

This is a great piece of news for Mumbaikars who do quick getaways to Alibaug and Kihim on the weekends. Now, instead of relying on the not-so-reliable transport there, we can just take our private transport and drive in Alibaug and around.

The report also adds that the ferry service will not be affected by monsoon {heavy rains} or bad weather and will remain operational 365 days a year. The vessel will be able to carry approximately 350 passengers and around 40 cars.

So, We're Saying...

With the ferry service, Mumbaikars can heave a sigh of relief. Here’s to successful Alibaug plans with Ro-Ro.
