The need for accessible waterborne transit is likely to grow with the demand for tourist attractions, business travel and other development around bodies of water.
With sustainability minded cities like Amsterdam and Copenhagen leading the way, there are a crop of eco-friendly ferry designs that serve the public without leaving them with the environmental bill.
Conversely, any regulated aquatic transport system is coupled with the need for water taxis, given some individuals' disinterest in crowds or time constraints that work against the public schedule.
In streamlining public systems of waterborne transit, cities are streamlining the experience for tourists and citizens who depend on accessible city services to get around. By expanding such services and in making affordable alternatives to ferries available, cities are opening themselves up for tourism.
