"Ferries will get a new life."

At 10 am on Monday, two new ferries, Shanghai ferry No.1 and Shanghai ferry No.2, joined the city's old ferry family, Shanghai Morning Post reported Tuesday. The two boats will service the Qiqin Line. Li Hua, manager of the passenger transport service department of Shanghai Ferry Co, said that ferries were "Once a popular form of transportation" but started seeing fewer passengers over the past decade. Taking advantage of the newly opened public space along Huangpu River's 45-kilometer riverside, Li believes the ferry system can be revitalized.
