Uber Sets Off For Its Maiden Voyage in Boston

Uber, the app that connects you with a driver at the tap of a button is now giving you the ability to connect with a captain…..of a boat!

Starting this summer, Uber will be temporarily showing users of available water taxis anytime you’re around a quarter mile of the Boston Harbor between June 4 and June 15.

Here’s a map of the locations you can dock from:

Here’s a snippet from the Uber’s Blog announcing the news:

           “June 4 through June 15, you can use the Uber app to request a water taxi, powered by Boston harbor Cruises. Make waves as you ride to your favorite seaport restaurant. Sail over to the ICA for First Friday. Add a splash of fun to your morning commute — or even a quick cruise to or from Logan. Catching a flight has never been so easy!”

Or if you have a brain, you can just the traditional Water Taxi service that’s been around in Boston for ages.

Will you be trying out Uber’s new Water Taxi or do you prefer the traditional water taxi?
