It’s not every day that you get to travel on water borne taxis in Delhi! But that dream from commuting between Delhi & Haryana on a water taxi will soon be a reality! How, you ask?
30 Second Window:
- Delhi will soon be synonymous with Venice’s ferry rides across the city! The Centre is planning to connect Delhi and Haryana via water taxis.
- The distance that usually takes 3.5 hours will just take 45 minutes for all those who wish to travel in the Yamuna on a water taxi that will be the city’s first ever water borne shuttling system!
- The travel time between Fatehpur Jat & Wazirabad will go down to just 45 minutes. Tourism much?
- That you carry an air filter with you at all times! You know how smelly Yamuna can get, so why take chances?
The Inland Waterways Authority of India will implement the project & process the procurement of vessels & other equipment. The authorities claim to have it ready by June!
