Will Bowen Island own water taxis?

The water taxi between Granville Island and Bowen Island will soon cease operations. For islanders who’ve come to depend on this speedy and environmentally preferable commute, this news is disappointing. Not surprisingly, the passengers have complained to the drivers — who love boats and have spent hours exploring what is possible. What if islanders bought (or leased) the boats and contracted an operating company to run them? Tonight, pilots Simon and Scott held an informal meeting in The Snug to explore the possibility with interested islanders. The small restaurant was packed.

A working group has been formed and Matthew Redekopp has agreed to post all of the relevant material, plus possibly a discussion forum, on the web. There is some urgency about this issue so watch for developments.

    As a followup to this story: Kelli Turner, the owner of the service, sold the Granville Island Water Taxi business to Malaspina Water Taxi and Old School Water Taxi. Details here: http://bowen-island-bc.com/forum/read.php?1,1211663
