City canals versus roads
Many city roads in recent years became a one way street, making it harder for regular taxi s to get from point A to point B. At the same time our canals were not used as such for transportation. One idea led to the other and watertaxi Amsterdam was born.
What better way to use the over 30% of waterways in Amsterdam to get to your destination by using a boat.
With a speed limit of mostly 6 km per hour it may not always be the fastest way to get there, we reckon. However its a very comfortable way of transportation and stress and pollution free.
So keep calm, sit back (have a drink) and let your captain handle it !
