Tri-Cities Water Taxi Could be a Reality

KENNEWICK, Wash.- Plans for a water taxi on the Columbia River are in the works.

Ben Franklin Transit presented plans for a feasibility study to the Tri-Cities Visitor and Convention Bureau Wednesday.

Tana Bader Inglima, Vice President of Marketing for the Bureau, said if it becomes a reality, the shuttle will be a valuable addition to the community and improve residents' quality of life.

The proposed shuttle would most likely run between the three cities with stops at riverside restaurants and other attractions, that's the plan the Rivershore Enhancement Council has come up with.
