Recently I was in Brisbane, which also has a large river running through the centre of the city. But Brisbane has a fleet of fast catamaran water buses serving about 15 stops. These run on a regular service of up to 15-minute intervals during peak hours and 20-30 minutes off-peak. Fares are cheap and the service is well used.
Although water traffic can only make a small impact on the overall problem, at least any easing of the commuter's lot should be welcome.Reuse content
