We've seen a number of amphibious vehicles in 2007 like the Humdinga and the sQuba. Up till now, price constraints have kept these water-loving autos in the garages of the wealthy. A taxi service, Osaka Mizukaido 808, has started to operate in the Japanese city of Osaka - taking passengers through the city's rivers and over the streets. Riders pay about $180USD for the first hour and $80 for each additional 30 minutes after that.
