Consorzio Motoscafi Venezia
This project, sponsored by the Consorzio Motoscafi Venezia, in Venice, Italy, evaluated the current taxi transportation system in an effort to improve the efficiency of the operation while minimizing its contribution to canal wall degradation. Taxi operations were analyzed, resulting in proposed modifications to boat design, fares, travel routes, and the dispatching system which all will help preserve this deteriorating city while maintaining the economic viability of the taxi transportation system. Additionally, this project surveyed taxi drivers to understand their thoughts of current procedures as well as future considerations.
