New Water Taxi to Connect for Old Town Alexandria

Tuesday, April 10, 2007
A new water taxi service will link Old Town Alexandria with National Harbor, the mile-and-a-quarter-long waterfront development under construction just south of the Wilson Bridge in Prince George's County.

Alexandria Mayor Bill Euille, Willem Polak, president of Potomac Riverboat Company and Milt Peterson, founder and chairman of Washington, D.C.-area developer, The Peterson Companies, which is developing the mixed-use project, announced today that the Potomac Riverboat Company will begin seven-day-a-week water taxi service between the two riverside destinations in April 2008. Two newly-commissioned 99-passenger boats, which are yet-to-be named, will run initially on the half-hour between 10 A.M. and 10 P.M., providing 50 one- way trips daily between the Alexandria City Marina and the Commercial North Pier at National Harbor. The crossing is expected to take 20 minutes. In addition to a new pier that will be constructed in Old Town, the maritime construction at National Harbor will be considerable and include two 700-ft. piers.
