Mumbai to Navi Mumbai in under 40 Minutes?
Mumbaikars can finally breathe a sigh of relief as Mumbai Port Trust (MbPT) is looking to initiate water taxi services from the city's DCT (domestic cruise terminal) at Princess Dock from the next upcoming month. Apart from the water taxis, they are also planning to develop shipbuilding, and allied activities.
“We are trying to launch water taxi service from Gateway of India to various other parts like, Kanhoji Angre Island, Karanja, JNPT, New Airport in Navi Mumbai, Nerul, Vashi, and Belapur. The plan has been prepared; we have invited tenders for people to start water taxis. If we get good water taxis which does not need much depth, these taxis can go up to Thane. Some of the water taxis will start in 3-4 months.”, says Sanjay Bhatia, Chairman, Mumbai Port Trust (MbPT).
