Helpful Definition for: Ferries & Water Taxis

Ferries, in Ambridge, belong to a type of public transportation, operating on frequent, regular, return services, used to ferry passengers, vehicles as well as cargo, across a water body.

Depending on the length of the route to be traversed, the passenger or vehicle capacity required, speed requirements and the water conditions the craft must deal with, a ferry may be designed in various forms, like- Hydrofoil, Double-ended, Catamaran, Hovercraft, Roll-on/roll-off (Ro-Ro), Fast Ropax ferry, Cruise ferry, Cable ferry, Turntable ferry, Foot ferry, Air ferry, Pontoon ferry, etc.

A ferry slip is a special facility designed to position the boats for loading & unloading purposes where the ferries generally dock at. Ferry travels have not received scrutiny of polluting effects as compared to the land & air transport. However, with increasing concern for shortage of fuel & environmental hazards posed by green house gases, combined Hydro-Solar energy is being considered to be implemented in these ferries to make them more eco-friendly.

Water taxis, in Ambridge, provide ferry services on demand-basis, in a more personalized manner. These are the commuter passenger boats for providing public transport, mostly in an urban environment. The service is comparable to that of taxis as the stops may be scheduled on demand.
