Kingston-Rhinecliff water taxi launches on Tuesday
KINGSTON — A Hudson River water taxi service between Rondout Landing in Kingston and the hamlet of Rhinecliff is to be launched Tuesday on a part-time basis.
Town of Rhinebeck Supervisor Tom Traudt said a test run has been conducted and the service has been approved following a delay of more than a year. The docks in Rhinecliff, which is within the town of Rhinebeck, were not ready for an initially planned start in June 2009.
“We have gotten everything squared away, and it will be ready for service,” Traudt said. “It’s very exciting.”
