Commuting by boat

Did you know that Wendella Boats have been offering water taxi commuter service in Chicago for nearly 50 years?

src= you know that an additional Chicago water taxi service was launched in 2009?

Did you know you can take a water taxi between the Loop and Chinatown?

Yeah, I didn't either. At least not until I read the article about Chicago's water taxi services that recently appeared in Active Trans' member newsletter.

The article was written by volunteer Modeshift contributor, Mary Chris Jaklevic.

Take a ride before the season ends. While Shoreline Taxi is done for the year, Wendella keeps the propellers spinnning until Thanksgiving.
