If you're worried about traffic tie ups around town during the RNC, you'll have another option.
A water taxi can get you where you need to go. The Tampa Water Taxi Co. and Ricks on the River just got approval to operate the taxi company along the heavily secured Hillsborough River.
The service will cost $25 round trip.
"We're offering transportation for people who can not get to their offices, transporting them from Ricks on the River, and then brining them right here to the Sheraton Riverwalk Hotel," said Capt. Laurence Salkin of Tampa Water Taxi Co.
When they're not taking people to and from work, the taxi service will offer two tours daily.
