From January 2022, a water taxi service will operate in Mumbai, providing convenient access between South Mumbai and Navi Mumbai.
The water taxi, notably the Harbour line, will relieve the strain on local train services. There are no other modes of transportation available between Mumbai and Navi Mumbai besides road and rail.
The water taxi will complete a single voyage in 30 minutes, drastically reducing the commute time between the roughly 30-kilometer area. The service will be available all year, including during strong rains, according to the report.
Aside from that, initiatives are in the works to increase the frequency of service between mornings and evenings.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi is expected to begin a water taxi service from the Domestic Cruise Terminal at Ferry Wharf and the terminals at Belapur and Nerul in January 2022, according to sources.
According to the report, the government has assigned routes to various operators, including International Cruise Terminal to Elephanta, Domestic Cruise Terminal (DCT) to Rewas, Dharamtar, Karanjade, Domestic Cruise Terminal to Belapur, Nerul, Airoli, Vashi, Khanderi Islands, and Jawaharlal Nehru Port (JNPT).
