To meet the demand expected this Easter holiday, the administrator of the Ferry-Boat system, International Crossings Salvador (ITS), will carry out trips at regular times (hourly) and extra outlets, whenever demand increases, between the 29 March and 2 April. On the days when a greater movement is expected, operation will occur 24 hours – from March 28 (Wednesday) to March 30 (Friday), primarily for the São Joaquim terminal; and again, from 1/04 (Sunday) to 2/04 (Monday), from the Bom Despacho terminal.
During these five days, the expectation is that they circulate between the two terminals, São Joaquim and Bom Despacho, more than 14 thousand vehicles and more than 99 thousand passengers, volume equal to that registered in the same holiday last year. The boats available are: Zumbi dos Palmares, Dorival Caymmi, Juracy Magalhães Júnior, Rio Paraguaçu and Ivete Sangalo. The system administrator points out that there may be maintenance intervals during operation.
