By Rubén Morales Iglesias: Long lines on both sides of two ferries on the Corozal to Sarteneja Road have commuters asking for ferry service to be 24 hours, according to Corozal Daily.

Commuters going all the way from Sarteneja to Corozal or vice versa must cross two ferries: the Pueblo Nuevo ferry and the Laguna Seca ferry. While the entire distance is just over 46 miles, what commuters are concerned about are the long lines on both sides of the two ferries. Some complain that they have to wait up to two or three hours depending on how long the lines are. This causes them to get late to work and/or school. On top of that, the service is just offered during the day.

The Pueblo Nuevo ferry crosses over the New River and Laguna Seca ferry crosses Laguna Seca, a lagoon that empties into Chetumal Bay.

The only way to avoid the ferries is to go the long way through Orange Walk passing through Progresso which is approximately 74 miles. That’s 28 miles more.

“Students have to wake up at 430 to 5am latest to be ready by 530am to take taxi or the only bus. Reach ferry 6am, cross, reach Corozal at 730. When Czl is only 15 miles away,” said a post by South East Corozal CB.

“Come on that’s killing the students who have to be at school early. In the afternoon the same situation they have homework some reaching home till 7pm.”

The ferry reportedly closes at 10:00 pm.

“Big tow head trucks cross alone with the driver only thus blocking 4 vehicles to cross probably carrying 10 persons who might be students or elderly people. Why can’t these trucks go around. They are the same ones who damage and broke the ferry.”

“There is no curfew, I don’t see why we can’t go back to normal hours like it was before the pandemic. Emergencies have to go all the way around to Orange Walk because of the closure of the ferries,” said Mario Mora Junior.
