Seoul, South Korea is unveiling water taxis starting Thursday! The fee is about $5 ~ $60 depending on distance. The catch is the seven-person taxis will depart only if all seats are full. Otherwise, the passengers in the boat have to pay for the empty seats. Also, none of the subway stops are right next to the water, so there’s no quick change between different modes.

Still cool!

  1. Very cool. And this is probably only possible b/c Seoul tore down the ugly, double-decker viaduct that ran through downtown and replaced it with some crazy suface/transit solution, exposing the central river that had been built over. :)
