I was joking, but then really thought about it and did more searching. I've always been surprised at how expensive the ferry services are to operate. I wonder how a service based on one of these would compare? Especially as it would be direct from city center to center, rather than the waterfronts. All you need is a ramp for infrastructure.

This one below made in the USA seems to retail starting at $250k. My arithmetic says 1 year of 4 trips per workday of $5 fares would pay it off. And that's not counting reverse commuters, weekends, nor fitting in more than 2 round trips per rush. Finance it on a 5 year note and it starts to look pretty profitable even at that low fare.

Just read an interesting article about Chariot vanpool service, which uses Ford vehicles, will debut next month in manhattan.

i think such a service between manhattan and jersey city would be useful.

How about instead of Ford Vans they use amphibious buses and skip the tunnel?
