Your #1 resource for transportation information & options to make getting into and around the District easier than ever.

American River Taxi

American River Taxi is the newest addition to the District’s network of transportation options. Touted as the first eco-friendly water transportation service on the Potomac River, the system provides valuable support to businesses along the developing waterfront area and to District residents, workers and visitors looking for alternatives to car travel.

American River WaterTaxiCurrently, American River Taxi offers service from three stops—all located within walking distance of other public transit for easy transfers. Stops include the following:

  • Georgetown/Washington Harbour Landing
  • The Wharf/Main Landing at Gangplank Marina
  • The Yards/Nationals Stadium Landing (Diamond Teague Terminal)

Pick-up times for specific stops are listed on the American River Taxi website, but in general, stops are between the hours of 11:15 am and 8:10 pm. Additional pick-ups are scheduled for summer concerts at The Yards Park and Nationals home games.

Tickets are $9 for each one-way trip and are available for sale at kiosks located at Georgetown/Washington Harbour and the Gangplank Marina at the Wharf. You may also purchase them onboard from any deckhand. Membership cards offering discounts for local DC residents and online ticket purchasing are available.
