This project, completed at the WPI Hong Kong Project Center in collaboration with the Harbour Business Forum and Designing Hong Kong, evaluates the future of water taxis in Victoria Harbour. Water taxis exist in Hong Kong, and our team found that there is demand for this service; we observed and interviewed providers of current water taxi type services as well as gauged public interest through a survey. Based on frequent consultation with public and private stakeholders, we developed a vision for the future of water taxis. We recommend a phased development plan for the organization of water taxis in Hong Kong.
