Water Taxi & Wharf Jitney

Introducing one of the best ways to view the city and the easiest mode of transportation to get to destinations on the Potomac and Anacostia rivers: our new water taxi. And if you just want to get across the Washington Channel, catch our jitney to East Potomac Park for a round of golf or a leisurely stroll.
