On Tuesday, July 24, 2018, D.C. Policy Center Fellow Alon Levy participated in a discussion on the Kojo Nnamdi show about whether a commuter ferry makes sense for the D.C. Region:

“Water taxis already float across the Potomac and Anacostia Rivers in the Washington area. But the region doesn’t have anything like a commuter ferry like those in Seattle and New York City. But a plan under discussion would create a water transportation system connecting Northern Virginia, Washington, D.C. and Maryland. How feasible is the proposal and is it the best way to approach transit problems in the region?”
