Water Taxi Fee Suspended for Now

There is good news for commuters tonight as a fee of one-dollar to have been imposed on passengers travelling on water taxis has been withdrawn.  The fee should have kicked in on September first, but the Commissioner of Ports, Marlene Bailey, has advised that it will no longer take effect. Water taxi operators were advised that they can assume the dollar fee or pass it on travelers.  The money would have been used to beef up the presence of the Port at the various water taxi terminals.  In a letter dated August twenty-first, Bailey notifies operators of the suspension of the fee for now.
