Water taxis start their trial runs along the Bridgewater Canal to Manchester

By Peter Trollope at

Manchester Water Taxis will run a service from Sale to Castlefield and will also run a service to the Trafford Centre via Old Trafford and Hotel Football, terminating at Dukes 92, Castlefield.

“We’ve all waited for this day to come. Its a dream come true. We all hope that this is the start of something new that will be here for a long time. We have big expansion plans for the service, and hope to run a service on the Manchester Ship Canal eventually,” said Steve Cadwell.

Steve formed the company  – Manchester Water Taxis – in 2009 – but it has taken almost seven years of work to get the boats on the water.
