I would not mind trying this new Water Taxi service. It is a good way to escape the everyday traffic headaches and if you love the sea, then this is option is for you. However, I would never depend on this form of transport to be reliable and therefore, I would probably use it for pleasure rather than hustling to go to work or to arrive in POS for a specific time.
In Trinidad, there is no such thing as a back up plan and hence the reason why we are always late with everything. The water taxis were tested twice and I suspect a lot of emphasis was placed on if the ferry was functioning properly. And no one thought about, what happens if the ticket system crashes? If you ask me, Trinis need to be more pro-active. I guess this water taxi was rushed and there was inadequate planning, since this service was supposed to be introduced last year and it never materialized until now. I guess Mr Colm Imbert was embarrassed and tried to ensure that the Water Taxi service would be introduced before the end of 2008 since there were so many other deadlines for this service to commence.
This is the life of a Trini, always putting the cart before the horse!
