Don’t forget seniors and the disabled

I DECIDED to go on holiday to Pangkor Island recently. To get there, you can take the ferry from Lumut Jetty or Marina Island on Peninsular Malaysia. I discovered to my disappointment that the Lumut jetty ferry service does not offer a senior citizen discount.

The ferry was air conditioned and clean and well maintained. But I noticed that it is not disabled friendly. One has to step onto the ferry. And once you’re on board, there is a lower deck that can only be reached by going down steps.
