Having issued a request for providers in 2009 and approved a proposal from San Francisco Water Taxi LLC to provide water taxi service in San Francisco from South Beach to Fisherman’s Wharf with stops between, the operation never got off the ground (or rather on the water).
According to the San Francisco Business Times, however, the port is resurrecting its plans for the water taxi service and will issue a new request for providers next month with hopes of having taxis roaming the bay in time for the America’s Cup.
