Beach Soliciting Proposals For Water Taxi Service To Downtown Miami

Express water taxi service could soon be operating between Miami Beach and downtown Miami.

Beach officials are planning to solicit proposals from private operators who are interested in running the service.

At a a minimum, the successful proposer will be required to operate water taxis that include air conditioning, protection from inclement weather, and meet ADA requirements. The proposer will choose docking sites, but they will be provided by the city ‘as is’, with construction and permitting the responsibility of the taxi operator.

Proposals are due on September 11.
